We have several events lined up for Youth Week here at Youthtown in Christchurch. We will be going into local schools to run sports and leadership themed workshops across the week. It will be a fun, action-packed, and interactive lunch session for each high school as we strive to set in motion and/or showcase the leadership skills of young people. We hope to deliver this opportunity in four different schools who we hold strong relationships with.
Our second event will be a Youth Drop-In space that will have a special focus on leadership and the youth week theme. We will use this drop-in to provide young people with a supportive space to take a leadership role in planning the remainder of the year with us for Youth Hub, encouraging them to take ownership of their own Drop-In space.
The third event we are planning on running is in collaboration with YCD and Strengthening Linwood Youth Trust at Linwood Park, engaging with young people and encouraging them to be leaders in the amazing space that has been built for them in Linwood. Our team are currently in talks about the design of this event.
