This youth strategy acknowledges that youth are a unique demographic with different needs and aspirations compared to the very young or older people in our community. The Central Hawke's Bay District will rely on youth to carry the community forward and into the future. Investment in their social, economic, environmental and economic wellbeing is of benefit to the entire community.
This is the first Youth Strategy developed by Central Hawke's Bay District Council, Youth providers and the young people of Central Hawke's Bay and signals the intent to work together in a coordinated and collaborative way.
This strategy reflects the diversity of our community and also addresses some of the key aims required to strategically place Central Hawke's Bay in the best possible position moving into the future.
