F.A.Q. Youth Expo 2002

22 August 2002

F.A.Q. (Frequently Asked Questions) Youth Expo 2002

Youth organisations in Hutt City and Wellington have joined forces to bring "F.A.Q. (Frequently Asked Questions) - Youth Expo 2002" to young people in the region. The expos will take place during National Youth Week (2 - 8 September), which has a "Celebrating Youth" theme.

The Hutt City expo is being held at Westfield Queensgate on Thursday 5th September from 3-8pm. Entry is FREE for young people, and both will have cool giveaways, food, music, and of course, loads of information for young people to take away.

Building on the success of the recently produced "Look Closer" youth poster and youth guide distributed to all secondary schools in Hutt City and Wellington, F.A.Q is aims to bring to life the services for young people detailed in the poster and guide.

Hutt City Manager, Community Development Tanya Winter, who is on the organising committee, is rapt that Westfield are involved.

"Westfield is sending out a positive message to young people by hosting this event. It is letting them know that they are valued members of the Hutt community," said Tanya Winter.

Phonic (the youth centre funded by Hutt City Council) has also come to the party and are putting on the post-expo gig, which starts immediately after the expo. "This ensures that young people have somewhere to go after the expo. It is a celebration of young people in Hutt City".

The Wellington expo is on Friday 6th September from 10am to 8pm at ZEAL. Lisa Woods from Fuse Rangatahi Trust, who is also on the organising committee said that ZEAL is an ideal place for the Wellington expo. "Young people already go to ZEAL. It is their space. What we are trying to do is increase their knowledge of the services that are out there for them", says Lisa. "There will be a DJ and MC at ZEAL all day to ensure the atmosphere is humming."

The expo organising committee has representatives from Project Adventure NZ, Wellington and Hutt City Councils, Fuse Rangatahi Trust, Youth Infusion, Youthline, Hutt Valley Youth Health Service.
