Action Is Name Of Game For Youth Council


15 March 2001


Action and achievement are the key elements exhibited in a quarterly report on Auckland City Council’s Youth Action Policy, with 96 percent of the nominated projects for 2000/2001 either completed, progressing or with planning under way.

“I am glad to see the Council supporting and nurturing a genuine youth contribution to the decision making process of this city and to the ongoing well-being of youth, by endorsing an extra $10,000 towards a dedicated Youth Activities Fund,” says Community Development Committee chairperson Councillor Penny Sefuiva.

“By making discretionary funds available, the Youth Council will be able to have some flexibility to take the initiative in a situation that may arise,” she says.

“There has been a great deal of external interest in Youth Action, with requests for copies from youth groups, health providers, other councils and members of the community”.

Also reporting to the committee was Robert Thomas, the outgoing Youth Council Chair, who was praised for his leadership and enthusiasm in a number of projects.

“Robert has led a number of the youth projects with distinction and I am very pleased to see that his contribution to the city will not be lost as he will continue as the Youth Council representative on the Waitemata Waterfront Working Party”.

“Knowledge and awareness of Youth Action is spreading throughout the Council and further afield, with marketing and libraries promotion being important vehicles for this”.

Councillor Sefuiva and one other counciIlor from the Community Development Committee will be discussing with the Recreation and Community Services and Planning groups the most appropriate method of delivering youth support to the Auckland City Youth Council.

“We are keen to maintain effective networks with interested organisations across the city and continue the good work going on for young people”.
