Kaikohe Youth Action Plan to be launched

Media Release 7 March 2014

For Immediate Release

Kaikohe Youth Action Plan to be launched.

On March 17 Te Pae Aronga Taitamariki will officially launch the Kaikohe Youth Action Plan at Northland College, as part of the Kaikohe Social Sector Trial. Local MP Mike Sabin will also be attending the launch.

Te Pae Aronga Taitamariki is a joint venture involving Youth Horizons, Otāngarei Trust and Ngāpuhi Iwi Social Services delivering the Social Sector Trials contract in Kaikohe and other intensive services to help meet the needs of youth in Northland.

Former Social Sector Trial Project Manager Wendy Ferguson researched and developed the Kaikohe Youth Action Plan through an extensive consultation process in Kaikohe. The implementation of the Action Plan is now well underway, with Project Manager Brennan Rigby working in the Kaikohe community since December.

Since the publication of the Action Plan in December numerous milestones have been met including:

• An educational facility for year 9 and 10 taitamariki who are currently disengaged from the mainstream school model has been established at Northland College.

• A student service coordinator ensuring students have access to appropriate services is in place at Northland College.

• 10 potential young leaders are now being provided access to the support and resources they need to connect to the wider community; they are being supported to organise and run events for youth in the community.

• A fund has been established to support taitamariki to participate in events celebrating and enhancing their success. HYPE Youth Advisory Group members are being trained to participate in the assessment of applicants to this fund.


ENDS
