Youth Week is a provincial celebration of youth held annually during the first week of May (May 1st to 7th). It is a week of excitement and celebration intended to build a strong connection between young people and their communities and to profile the issues, accomplishments and diversity of youth across the province.
As part of BC Youth Week, The City of Richmond and Community Associations hosts a number of free or low-cost events. These fun and interactive events are a great way for youth to spend time with friends in a safe, youth-friendly environment and celebrate being a youth in Richmond!
