Kia Ora, my name is Prisca Pieters and I am a member of the Canterbury Youth Workers Collective board.
I have worked and trained in the youth sector for 5 years so I still very much feel like a newbie in many rooms but I absolutely love working in and being a part of the youth sector in Christchurch.
I studied at Praxis & Weltec finishing up with a Bachelor in Youth Development, bringing that qualification down south with me.
I have been working as a 24-7 youth worker in 2 different schools over the last 5 years as well as being the Youth Coordinator at Grace Vineyard Church.
I joined the board this year as I am passionate about young people and passionate about learning how I can upskill, to be the best on the ground youth worker I can be. I also love learning about systems and how the cogs turn in the big picture. Every meeting I come home fizzing that I get to sit around a table and korero with some of the absolute youth work legends of Otautahi.
I love adventure, sports, and skiing. I'm also about to move out to the beach! Bring on New Brighton life
