This year Youth Week was celebrated on Tuesday, April 16, Wednesday, April 17 and Wednesday, April 24.
The week is an opportunity for young people to express their ideas, act on issues that affect their lives, and create and enjoy activities and events.
A number of free activities were held in Narromine and Trangie including totem skateboarding demonstrations and workshops, sausage sizzle and family movie night which screened 'Small Foot'.
Communities for Children coordinator Ann-Louise Stonestreet said it's important for the shire's youth to come together to help build and promote small communities.
"I believe it is vital for small communities to come together to embrace and celebrate the strengths and diversity of our youth and young people, creating a healthy strong community, now and for our future," she said.
"Too many communities run their kids down which in turn has them leave town as they get older and have a family or their own.
"We want layers and layers of respectful community minded youth who will stay in our community ensuring growth of schools, businesses and area."
National Youth Week is jointly supported by the Australian Government, State and Territory Governments and Local Governments.
Youth Week in the Narromine Shire is also supported by Communities for Children, Breakthru Solutions, Catholic Care, Narromine USMC, Macquarie Library, Uniting and Trangie Action Group.
