Our big Youth Week event is an open mic/jam night for young people that we want to host at our Youth Hub in Upper Hutt. It will be open to young people, their friends and family and the wider community. Throughout the week leading up to the event, we hope to have young people involved in the preparations, to get them hyped for the Friday night. What we hope to achieve out of this is the young people being safely supported to take leadership roles in the planning of this event. To spread the word, we want to cast the net wide – we’ll go into schools to connect with young people and their music teachers, local music schools and via our social media. We hope that this effort promotes the Youth Hub and Youth Week well, to enable more of the young people and wider community to know who and where we are, and a little bit more about our services.
