The Howick Youth Council is a collective of passionate individuals striving to make Howick, Botany, Ormiston, and Pakuranga a more attractive and vibrant place for its young people.

We are an independent and non-partisan entity that operates with and is funded by the Howick Local Board.

Our vision:




​That the Howick Youth Council represents youth voices in initiating changes in our community.


That the Howick Youth Council facilitates opportunities for all youth in the community to develop.


That the Howick Youth Council empowers youth to reach their leadership potential, becoming leaders of tomorrow.

We seek to empower youth to bring about a positive influence in our community by ensuring their voices are heard in the decisions that shape our city. 

The Howick Youth Council does this by organising events, advocating for issues that matter to young people, and facilitating consultation on council plans that will impact youth.

The youth council is 100% run by volunteers and we thank present and former youth for their contribution to our mission.
