The Masterton and Carterton Youth Councils

The Youth Councils are a great way for young people to affect change in their communities. If you want to have input into decisions about issues in the community, you can participate in youth councils to make your voice heard. The Youth Councils are made up of a group of young people who meet fortnightly to discuss and address youth-related topics such as things to do, places to go, employment opportunities, training programmes, and anything else that relates to the Wairarapa and its young people. South Wairarapa youth can join either council.

What’s Involved?

As a member of the Youth Council you’ll get opportunities for:

  • personal development
  • connecting and building relationships with other passionate young people and key decision-makers in Wairarapa.
  • building your skillset as a young professional
  • having fun and creating awesome opportunities for other young people
  • providing a youth perspective to our three district councils on all issues, especially those affecting youth.

We understand that you have busy schedules and may only be interested in specific parts of what we do, so we will work with you to support that.

To get involved, please connect via the Masterton District Youth Council Facebook page Carterton Youth Council Facebook page or follow @_cartertonyouthcouncil_ and @mastertondistrictyouthcouncil on Instagram.
