Kawerau Youth Council applications open
17 February 2015
APPLICATIONS for members of Kawerau’s 2015 youth Council are open in preparation for a busy year.
Kawerau District Council events and community activities co-ordinator Lee Barton said applications would close on February 28 and a decision on successful applications would be made quickly.
He said the group would be sworn in at a ceremony in March, before a training weekend later in the month.
Along with organising and hosting events for the town’s young people, the youth council would make submissions to a review of Kawerau District Council’s youth policy.
“It will capture the thoughts and opinions of Kawerau youth so they genuinely have a voice,” Mr Barton said.
The consultation would inform the policy with exactly what young people wanted for their town, he said.
