A live DJ, food trucks and plenty of giveaways, Mandurah's young people will be in for a treat this month when Youth Jam comes to the city. 

The event will be held on April 13 and forms part of Youth Week WA and is designed to celebrate local young people.

Community members between 11-25 years old are invited join in with archery tag, skate and scooter competitions, game vaults and professional demonstrations.

Youth Week WA is a state-wide annual event to celebrate sustainable growth and encourage young people and the broader community to recognise the contributions that young people make to the communities across WA.

This year's theme is "Nurture the Now" and was created to encourage the potential for young people to have a positive impact at this stage in their lives.

Locally, Youth Jam will be held at Hall Park along the Western Foreshore Skate Park. 

City of Mandurah mayor Rhys Williams said recognising the involvement of young people in our local community is extremely important.

"Every week I have the opportunity to interact with amazing young people doing outstanding things across Mandurah and Youth Week gives us a reason to celebrate and recognise that contribution.

"I'm really proud of the contribution that our young people are making, not just as leaders of the future, but leaders right now," Mayor Williams said

The City provides support and opportunities for our young people, offering more than 150 programs, events and activities for young people to get involved in.

Youth Week WA will be officially launched by Minister for Youth Peter Tinley and Mayor Rhys Williams in Mandurah at 11am on April 13.

The City is partnering with Headspace Mandurah, Mission Australia Reconnect, Streetnet Youth Services, Peel Youth Services and Passages Youth Engagement Hub.
