Opportunity to have your say on Youth Committee’s Strategic Plan - 21/03/2012
Wanganui District Council’s Youth Committee has developed its first draft 10-year Strategic Plan. The plan outlines its vision for a ‘vibrant, thriving, empowering community, where young people love to be,’ and the Youth Committee wants to hear what the community thinks.
Dub.Dee.See Connect-Hononga 2022 aligns with the Council’s 10-year plan process and supports youth outcomes in five focus areas of education, training and employment; youth health; recreation and leisure, events and entertainment; communication; governance. The draft document includes names and photos of Youth Councillors who are no longer with the Committee, but who contributed hugely to the development of Dub.Dee.See.Connect-Hononga 2022.
Cr Jack Bullock, Chair of the Youth Committee, urges everyone who has an interest in youth issues in the district to engage with the consultation process.
“The Youth Committee’s strategic plan is the first of its kind and a lot of hard work and discussion has gone into the document.
“I encourage people to take time to read the plan and let us know what they think. The Youth Committee is keen to know that there is support for the direction they are taking to empower, connect and give young people in Wanganui the best chances and opportunities available to them now, and in the future too.”
Copies of Dub.Dee.See Connect-Hononga 2022 are available on the Council website at www.wanganui.govt.nz, from the Customer Services Desk, Wanganui District Council, 101 Guyton Street, Wanganui, the Davis Central City Library, Gonville Café Library and the Awa City Computer Clubhouse at 7 Park Place, Wanganui.
