We want young people to feel empowered to reach their full potential in a way that is meaningful to them. To achieve this vision and to uphold the Mana Taiohi principles for young people in Aotearoa, we want to see Hastings’ young people strong and enhanced in their mana. Hastings District Council has a range of services and programmes that young people can get involved with.
Ka hao te Rangatahi | Hastings Youth Strategy was adopted by the Hastings District Council in September 2022. The strategy outlines how the Hastings District Council is investing in the positive development of its young people aged 12-24 years over the next five years.
Through its goals and actions, we are striving to enhance young people’s mana so they feel empowered to reach their full potential. The strategy provides a framework to better engage young people in the future and strengthen Council services and programmes to better meet the needs of youth across the Hastings district.
The strategy is a joint commitment by the Hastings District Council and the Hastings Youth Council. Young people’s ideas, thoughts and experiences have driven the development of the strategy, its priorities and the actions.
