Langley celebrates BC Youth Week
From May 1-7 young people throughout the City and Township had the opportunity to participate in a variety of special events for BC Youth Week.
Ranging from a skate board jam, a bike show and a poetry slam to a council cook-off and even an amazing race, kids and teens across the two municipalities were celebrated with fun activities created by youth for youth.
Since 1995 Youth Week has been held across the provincial during the first week of May to help build connections between young people and their communities.

This is the first of six different events being held by the Township of Langley during BC Youth Week, from May 1-7. The Skate Jam gave an opportunity for teens to enjoy skate and bike demos, food, prizes and "really loud music" at their local hangout.
