Youth Week is May 1 - 7

Youth Week is a BC-wide celebration of youth held annually during the first week of May. We aim to recognize the positive contributions young people make in our communities, and to celebrate the valuable work youth do all year round. Take a look at the week of fun and exciting events that we hope will continue to build strong connections between youth and the City of New Westminster.
