Youth Work & Rerenga Awa Members at Public Events
Each year Collective members volunteer to work at public events in the Christchurch area. Events include Coca-Cola Christmas in the Park, New Brighton Fireworks, and ASB Classical Sparks.
These events are a great opportunity for Youth Workers to experience a different kind of Youth Work and team up with other Youth Workers.
During the events, Youth Workers divide into teams and engage with young people to ensure they are safe. If a young person is in an unsafe situation, including being intoxicated or in danger, we run a tent staffed by Youth Workers which provides a safe place for young people to go.
