Volunteer Nelson is collaborating with Youth and Community Works, Nelson Youth Events, the Nelson Tasman Youth Workers Collective and Big Brothers Big Sisters to bring you opportunities for young people in volunteering, leadership and governance.
Youth and Community Works has been busy delivering training to youth organisations in the area of governance, leadership and volunteering. The next offering we have for you all in this area is the Young Change Makers event. This is put on by Nelson Youth Events with support from Volunteer Nelson. Details below. Registrations for this event are through schools or if you aren’t at school contact [email protected].
Young Change Makers is an interactive learning forum, empowering young people to take initiative in community action, leadership and governance. Join in for a day of inspirational workshops, discussions and presentations for young community leaders to connect on and support in the regions reboot.
Along to give a key note address at this years event is Golriz Ghahraman MP. Golriz is an Iranian-born New Zealand politician and member of Parliament. The former United Nations lawyer was a child asylum seeker, and became the first refugee elected to New Zealand’s Parliament.
Nelson Young Change Makers is free to attend with registrations taken through participating schools. The event is suitable for students in years 11-13. Young Change Makers is brought to you by Nelson Youth Events with support from Volunteer Nelson, and funding from Nelson City Council.
