A Celebration in Isolation! To celebrate Youth Week 2020

The pandemic has dampened our plans for Youth Fest 2020, so we’ve had to move it to later in the year but that won’t stop us celebrating. We want you to show us how you are making the best of social isolation.

Clips can be made on any applications available to you: iMovie, TikTok, Instagram, Facebook, it’s up to you. Just make sure that they can be uploaded to Facebook and Instagram. The video may only include the sender’s image.

Be assured that SENTRAL Youth Workers will be moderating all posts and comments.

Send your 30 second videos to:

email: council@kiama.nsw.gov.au with the subject “ Celebration in Isolation”

Direct message Instagram: sentral_youth_kiama

Direct message Facebook: Kiama Youth Services 

Deadline: 5pm Monday 6th April.

Films will be screened on our social media channels throughout Youth Week, April 1-9 and a selection of favourites will be screened on a giant screen at Youth Fest later this year.

SENTRAL Youth Services centre is located in the cottages in Hindmarsh Park Kiama.

We offer a range of youth projects, events and other initiatives for young people aged 12-24, living, working or studying locally. We support young people to gain valuable skills, contribute to their community, meet and work with other local young people, and of course, to have fun! We work with other organisations and service providers to get young people actively involved in the world, to provide high quality youth services, and to meet the needs of our young people. We provide ongoing assistance and programs in the areas of health, social, cultural, recreational and employment needs.

Referral Services

SENTRAL is a referral based service that supports and nurtures young people to be the best they can be. Sometimes things get tough. SENTRAL staff can assist and refer young people to specific services that identify with their needs.
