This week is Youth Week in the City of Nanaimo.
Youth Week activities are planned from May 1-7 to celebrate youths in the Harbour City. The activities are designed to get young people involved in recreation while also helping to engage and connect them with the broader community.
“Youth Week is a great chance to celebrate young people in our community and all the energy and enthusiasm they bring to Nanaimo as volunteers, students, and citizens,” city recreation coordinator Megan Lum said in a press release.
Events include a ‘dive-in movie’ at the Nanaimo Aquatic Centre on Saturday, May 4, youth skates today, May 3, and Sunday at Cliff McNabb Arena, a makeup class taught by a professional makeup artist, and more. There are 15 events scheduled throughout the week meant for youths aged 11-18. Some are drop-in, while others require pre-registration.
