THE COFFS Coast and Nambucca Valley will have an early lead in to Youth Week over coming days.

The annual state-wide celebration of the future leaders of the community runs over April 5-14 but there's an early treat happening at Boambee.

This Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, Matthew Sparrius of C-Change Adventures is kicking off Youth Week with an incredible gesture.

"We are offering some free kayak adventures and games over the three days from 10am until noon," he said.

"We'd love to get young people down at Boambee Creek Reserve to enjoy the beautiful outdoors on free kayaks."

Youth aged from 12 to 25 years are eligible to go exploring local spots where most others can't, participate in fun water activities and soak up the magical experience of one of the most beautiful environmental and diverse ecological systems in NSW.

To book a spot on one of the available tours, contact Matt at C-Change Adventures on 0468 406 222 or email for more details.

Meanwhile, the Nambucca Valley Youth Services Centre will be holding a series of music workshops leading up to the launch of Youth Week.

Next Saturday, April 6, there's a launch between 10am-1pm at 48 Ridge Street.

Enjoy a free barbecue and watch the slide show highlighting NVYSC projects.

To register or for further information about the workshops and concert, contact Toby or Lea on 6568 7777.
