Northern Territory Youth Week

Northern Territory Youth Week (or NTYW) is an annual celebration of young people across the Territory and involves a range of fun and exciting events and activities.

NTYW 2018 ran from Friday 13 April to Sunday 22 April and theme was Be Tru, Be You.

The 2018 NTYW Ambassadors

We asked our 2018 NTYW Ambassadors what the theme meant to them:

Chelsea Hamilton


Chelsea from Alice Springs said “Be Tru, Be You to me, means expressing one’s own individuality confidently and by doing so, learning about other's experiences, cultures, interests and identities”.

Ineke Wallis


Ineke from Nhulunbuy said “To me this means believe in yourself and always follow your gut instinct. Don’t let others persuade you, the quality of your happiness is determined by the quality of your thoughts. Put yourself around people who support you and tell you, you are doing good and making a difference. Having someone to support your decisions and be there for you when you need it is very helpful!!”
