CYWC Connect Meetings

These meetings are held quarterly throughout the year to allow anyone in the youth sector to meet others and form relationships. We often theme each meeting around a particular topic and invite some organisations to share what they are doing in that area. Always kai and chance to share info.

These meetings are typically a Wednesday 10am-12pm.

Māori Youth Workers Network

These hui are still a work in progress and we are looking at how we can best offer ongoing support to this rōpū. However, our initial hui have shown that Māori youth workers are keen for more whanaungatanga, share information, supporting tangata whenua who may be isolated in their organisation, upskilling in Te Ao Māori and also helping Pakehā to advocate for Māori.
