What is our goal?

We want to create a safe, enjoyable environment so that youth will want to stay in Northern Wellington for their careers and to build a life here!

How can we accomplish this?

By working together to build the bridges between Youth and their community. By allowing them to have a voice, plan activities and events and get what they want out of their hometown!

Why the Youth focus?

Our Youth are smart, fun, ambitions, full of energy, ideas and valuable input! They bring a light to any project and/or event. It is both rewarding and necessary to work with them to build a community. If we want a community to continue to grow and prosper, it is essential to invest in our Youth!
