The New Zealand Human Rights Commission, Independent Police Conduct Authority, Multicultural New Zealand and Hui E have partnered to hold a series of youth workshops nationally. The purpose of these workshops are to explore some of the barriers youth face when accessing social services particularly when they require assistance. The workshops will provide a positive environment to interact, discuss these issues and mutually educate and inform.
The youth will also contribute to developing a Youth APP – YouthAoteaReo funded by New Zealand National Commission for UNESCO. This will serve as an ongoing national resource to support youth.
We are seeking your assistance to promote the workshop amongst your community networks in Palmerston North. Please can the attached information be shared through your community networks and youth encouraged to register. The workshop is free to attend, includes dietary appropriate meals and wifi. Open to all youth aged 14 – 25, however age is not a barrier but a guide. Our focus is on getting the key voices of youth in the workshop.
We are grateful for your support. We are confident this positive initiative will strengthen our engagement with all youth, particularly those from Maori, Pacific and Ethnic communities and former refugee and migrant backgrounds.
