​The WDC Youth Advisory Group (YAG) is looking for seven inspired and motivated people, from around the District, aged between 15 and 20 to join them.

They will need to be team players who are interested in working with Council to provide a youth Perspective, to help make our District a great place for youth to live, earn and learn.

“This is a great opportunity for young people in Whangarei to make a difference,” says WDC Community Services Adviser, Carla Janssen.

“It’s a great experience. Members of the group bring along young people’s opinions and get to see how the Council works, and make a difference to their community,” adds founding group member Brad Olsen.

“It’s very rewarding, as you giveback to your peers, and make some great friends and contacts on the group,” he says.

“The group has been operating since June 2012, and has already made a huge impact on the way young people’s voices are heard by the decision makers at Council.”

Application forms and a description of the membership role can be found at

or printed and mailed to Carla Janssen, Whangarei District Council, Private Bag 9023, Whangarei 0148. Application forms are also available at your local library.
