Represent in 2022


Are you a Napier youth looking to make a difference? Apply for the 2022 Napier Youth Council now! Being a member of the Youth Council gives young people plenty of opportunities to develop their skills, be a leader, and promote young people in a positive way. Youth Council has been a truly phenomenal experience for which she is immensely grateful, says current chair Ella Philp, and she is inspired to do more in future. “Throughout the year, I have had the opportunity to develop my collaborative, leadership and even debating skills. I have also gained fantastic insight into how local government functions which has inspired me to one day have a role in government of some form. It has been a great privilege to build on the mana of youth in Napier through amplifying youth voice.” The Youth Council is made up of teenagers aged 12-18 who live, work or attend school in Napier. They meet fortnightly throughout the year, set their own priorities and workplan, and provide a youth perspective to council projects and policy. Interested?
