Kia ora to our Youth Week Champions! This year a rōpū of amazing rangatahi have come together to Champion Youth Week across the motu. These Champions work in the regions with our communities. Last Saturday, they came together to co-design their role as Youth Week Champions, what does it look like, and dove deep into ‘Ko Wai Au’, whakawhanaunataga, and shared some beautiful kai.
A big thank you to Te Ara for hosting us and the wider Ara Taiohi team for helping pull this wānanga together.
The Youth Week Champions are:
Front (L-R): Hoana, Latayvia, & Talei (Youth Week Campaign Lead) Back (L-R): Tayla, Patience, Soni, Timena (Youth Week Partnerships Lead), & Ofa
