Youth day to launch Council's new youth policy and website

An exciting Youth Day and Expo for all young people in Manukau is being held on Friday, 26 November at the Allan Brewster Centre in Papatoetoe. From 10am to 2pm there will be a full line-up of entertainment and guest speakers, including Flava and C4's Teuila Blakely, Dei Hamo, Three Houses Down and lots more. The day will also be used to launch the Council's new Youth Policy and Action Plan and the Manukau Youth Website www.ontoit.org.nz.

"The new youth website has been developed to reflect the unique diversity of Manukau's young people. It also adds value to their lives through supporting their positive attitude by keeping them in touch with youth events and activities in the city and by being a source of information, "says Manukau Mayor Sir Barry Curtis.

Partnering with the Council to host the day is the Ministry of Youth Development (MYD), which provides a link between Government and the nation's young people.

"The Ministry is proud to be standing alongside the Council in launching this new initiative to celebrate the awesome young people of Manukau," says MYD General Manager Justine Auton. "This day is about giving the young people of Manukau an opportunity to showcase their talents, and for the community to see what a fantastic contribution they make to the vibrancy and lifeblood of the area."

The main pages on Manukau City Council's youth website are: Switch On: links to jobs, school information, money, youth rights, flatting, relationships with the police, and youth services; What's On: an events and activities calendar; Challenges and Competitions; Newsroom: for news and opportunities to speak out and get involved; Lifestyle: links to topics such as relationships, drugs, alcohol and smoking, parties, sports; Fun: what's hot and what's not with music, games and everything www.
