Here's to being young, fun and fancy free.

In a week-long celebration kicking off from today, Victorian Youth Week is a chance to praise being youthful, express ideas and act on any issues that affect your lives. Oh, and have some fun along the way.

Catering to those aged 12-25, the state wide celebration is in full swing, with 9 days of jam-packed fun for you to get stuck into.

Here are some of the highlights happening around Gippsland from April 13 - April 22:

Saturday April 14 | Girls Only Skate Event

April Lavigne's 2002 hit 'Sk8er Boi' will take on a whole new meaning when this 'Girls Only' event skates into town. Enjoy lessons, followed by a "friendly" competition open to everyone at Glengarry Skate Park from 11am.

Friday April 20 | Pizza and Movie Night

For all those 15 to 18, join the crew at Leongatha (South Gippsland) from 4pm - 7:30pm for a pizza and movie night featuring the latest Jumanji film.

All the usual suspects will be there - pop corn, chocolate, fruit salad and soft drinks. Simply, BYO a bean bag, cushion, pillow, blanket, or anything to get you comfy.

Location: The Salvation Army building on Long Street

Thursday April 19 | Party In The Park

Burke Street Park in Warragul will come alive with street art, pancakes, free barbeque, open mic and band competitions and activites for an epic party in the park.

Join your fellow youthful friends and kick back for an afternoon of fun.

Thursday April 19 | Skate Park Comp

Get the skates out, and this time, boys you can come too. Get down to Warragul Skate Park from 3pm to compete in skate, scooter, or BMX comps with free giveaways and prizes to be won!

Not much of a skater? No worries. They'll be a stack of street art, live music, free barbeque and the team from Ref Frogs to keep everyone else entertained.

How good is it being young?
