May brings along a very special week dedicated to our young people - it's YOUTH WEEK 2020.
Beginning on Saturday 9th and concluding on Sunday 17th of May; Cromwell Youth Trust will be doing what we can to provide an enjoyable and exciting week of fun with games and prizes to hand out to our local youth.
This will be accessible online with the potential (fingers crossed) to offer a small portion of it at The Hangout Youth Centre if the NZ Government drops the alert level to 2 in the coming weeks - so watch this space for updates!
The theme for this years Youth Week, voted by kiwi youth, is “E korero ana mātou. E whakarongo ana koutou? | We’re speaking. Are you listening?”
Supporting our youth is extremely important to Rhys & Eden, as youth workers, and what is most important is ensuring our programmes are youth driven. This means it comes from our young peoples own ideas, recommendations and desires about what they would like to have us develop and for them to then partake in. Both Rhys & Eden have already begun to gain an insight into what future programmes we can deliver for our youth by doing a variety of engaging, online surveys throughout Level 4 lockdown - with a large number of youth taking part in our surveys.
We will offer another additional survey, in the lead up to Youth Week, to gain an insight into what our youth would like to do during this time - with Rhys & Eden doing their absolute best to support there ideas with the generous financial support provided from Ara Taiohi.
