We provide youth services and a cadet and scholarship programme for young people.

Our Youth Advisory Group (YAG) provides advice to Council from a youth perspective.  

To ask a question about our youth services, contact our Community Development Advisers on 09 430 4200.

Our Community Development team compiles a list of fun activities and programmes to help parents and caregivers organise activities for their children and young people during the school holidays. 

Some of these programmes are free, and many are registered with OSCAR and WINZ and may be subsidised.
