Youthtown Squad 2019

SQUAD 2019

What is Youthtown Christchurch Squad?
The Youthtown Christchurch Squad was formed in 2012.
The Youthtown Squad is open to 13-18 year olds who want to be involved in community events, develop your leadership skills, help to design and market afterschool and holiday programmes for teenagers as well as getting their peers ideas around youth issues. The Youthtown Squad play a big role in voicing what kind of events youth want to go to, so we can set about organising and promoting awesome youth events!
_______________________________
We want members to get out of it just as much as they put in, so expect awesome training opportunities, trips away to learn from other advisory inspirational speakers and squads and, of course.. A whole lot of fun!!
This group will continue to grow as a voice for local youth, with endless opportunities to get involved with other projects running in our community.
So what are you waiting for? If you are aged between 13 and 18 apply now!
