Community Development Scheme
Integrated Youth Services Community Coordinator
A strategic overview to developing an initiative within a community process. This area focuses on the development of three areas over a period of three years with the main focus on making sustainable foundation for youth initiated projects that are driven by the youth in Te Hiku Region.
– Establishment of Fully Integrated Youth Service Network
– Integrate a Positive Youth Development Framework
Some of the developments are driven as a collective process with other providers and youth leaders within the wider community. The overarching component is to develop a collective collaborative approach moving forward in the community.
We envisage to develop initiatives that empower Rangatahi (youth) to motivate and drive initiatives forward. Developments like Think Tanks, banking ideas, visiting placed based initiative’s, community lead projects that are led by a need within the community for young people. Hopefully we are able to develop a centre that is a reflection of the need within the community for Youth.
