Tamworth Youth Week 2020 goes online for region’s young people due to COVID-19 crisis | The Northern Daily Leader


Online is the cool new place to hang out for the region’s youth as the COVID-19 crisis forces people to stay inside. Youth Week kicked off on Wednesday and activities will be run through Facebook, Instagram, Netflix Party and the Tamworth Regional Council website every day until April 9. People 14 to 24 years old are encouraged to join in on activities like a short story competition, a best photo contest, an online movie night and Facebook live videos from leaders in the community.
