Thousands of young people aged 12 to 25 from across South Australia get involved in SA Youth Week (SAYW) each year.
SAYW showcases young peoples’ talents, contributions and achievements; promotes a positive image of young people; acknowledges the common interests of young people, as well as their diverse backgrounds and circumstances; and enables young people to express their ideas.
Although the name has changed from National Youth Week, the benefits and opportunities to highlight young people’s talents, contributions and achievements remain the same.

As part of SA Youth Week the Multicultural Communities Council of SA, and the Cities of Charles Sturt, Port Adelaide Enfield and West Torrens hold an annual Youth Expo, to showcase a range of services for young people in the Western region. Fun activities, free food and entertainment are also provided at this event.
