Youth Council

Rangitīkei District Council is excited to have set up its first Youth Council in 2019. Youth Councils are a formal body made up of youth who advise Councillors from a youth perspective. It is an opportunity for youth to work alongside Councillors and council, get more involved in solving local problems and actively engage in the community. It further provides a platform for you to have input on policies AND direct access to the policy makers.

Rangitīkei Youth Council Applications

The Rangitīkei Youth Council is open to all youth aged 13 – 24 that are affiliated to the Rangitīkei District.

We need representation across district, and successful candidates will be good at communication not just verbally but also email and Whats App messages, along with maintaining youth committees/networks to get wider youth input. Youth Councillors need to be open minded and keen to learn, have good time management, want to work with the community and be responsible for deliverables for youth such as leading the Youth Awards Evening.
