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.
“A regional resource kit for Whauau, parents and caregivers of teens called “Tools for the Teenage Years has been developed and was launched in January 2018. The four Hawkes Bay local authorities have worked together on this valuable resource aimed at helping parents through the sometimes tricky teenage years. The resource includes a range of topics to assist parents and caregivers when raising teenagers. It also provides helpful tips and information along with details of agencies and websites to help parents navigate these years with their teen. Copies of this free resource are available from various locations including CHB Libraries, schools and community organisations or you can contact Christine Renata on 8578 060 or firstname.lastname@example.org to request a copy.
