IMAGINE, create, inspire is the theme for 2012 Youth Week and the Northern Beaches Youth Centre intend to do just that with their special party event this weekend.

National Youth Week, beginning today, is the largest celebration of young people in Australia.

To celebrate locally, the NBYC is hosting a special event tomorrow open to all children and parents.

"It's all about having fun in a safe, supervised environment," co-ordinator John Black said.

Beginning at 3pm tomorrow the grounds of the centre in Queen St will be a hive of activity.

Kids will have the chance to help restore the graffiti NBYC sign, learn how to braid hair or have it done, learn how to do circus acts as well as enjoy a show and have fun on a foam slide.

There will also be an open mic session for those who can sing, play an instrument or want to perform some.

A barbecue will be available to fill the hungry bellies.

Entry is $5, with all proceeds going directly to fund the operation of the NBYC.

A free bus will run from Corindi and Emerald Beach to the event and drop kids back afterward.

Also to celebrate Youth Week, the centre is holding an under-18 band day at the Harbourside Markets on Sunday.

All performers are under-18 locals and again all proceeds from the day will go back to the centre.

The NBYC is always looking for volunteers.

Anyone who can spare a few hours on a Saturday night every now and again is asked to phone John on 0411 464 022.
