Act Belong Commit YOH Fest is Western Australia's biggest youth performing arts event, gives thousands of high school students throughout WA and NT with the opportunity to take part in a revolutionary approach to health education. The annual multi arts event requires high school students to get together to construct and perform their own dance sequence, drama play or visual art piece on a relevant youth health theme.
Thousands of young people from schools right across Western Australia and the Northern Territory take part in Act Belong Commit YOH Fest each year in some of the best regional and metropolitan venues. Act Belong Commit YOH Fest is as unique as they come, being the only festival of its kind in Australia. It's organised, managed and run completely by young people for young people, from the director and event coordinators, to the volunteers.
The Festival is recognised by Healthway as WA's leading forum for youth health education through the arts. The key objective of Act Belong Commit YOH Fest is to educate and empower young people to enable them to make positive and healthy life choices. Participating students gain a sense of energy and liveliness, leadership skills, self-confidence and respect for each other, as well as an understanding of relevant youth issues.
Act Belong Commit YOH Fest's key goal is to educate and empower young people to make positive and healthy life choices, for themselves and for a better society.
