What began as a small NSW Government initiative in 1989 has since grown to be an inspiring celebration of NSW and indeed Australia's proud young citizens. NSW Youth Week is a collaborative effort between councils, local government and local youth organisations that provides the opportunity for young people to attend live events and workshops, showcase their talents and share ideas, raise issues that affect the local youth population but most importantly to celebrate their community contribution.

The Oberon Youth Council in conjunction with CBA, Rotary, LifeLine Central West, Tarana Farmers Markets, and Tarana Farmers Drought Fundraising, are preparing a weekend full of activities focused on "How To Adult". The sessions, aimed at ages 16 to 24, will be held on April 13 and 14 with a range of activities across the weekend that will include valuable information and a lot of fun.
