Have you ever thought about being on a youth council? 🙋 It’s an incredible opportunity to give back to the community and develop yourself personally and professionally!

The Howick Youth Council is once again looking for passionate young people aged 12-24, who live, learn or work within the Howick Local Board area to join our team in 2022. So if you’re a university student, out of school, or in high school, then this is for you!

Our focuses range from advocacy on both local and regional issues, however, our priority is to empower East Auckland's youth.

We allow members to collaborate and learn with other like-minded individuals to grow their leadership capabilities. Through the projects our members organize we aim to create connections within our diverse community and engage with young people on issues that are important to them.

Learn more about what HYC does here:

As East Auckland’s future leaders, entrepreneurs and voters, it's important to build a sense of community within our young people by creating connections between schools that will prepare for better relationships outside of a young person's schooling.

Thus, this is an incredible opportunity to join one of the largest youth councils in Auckland and gain leadership skills that will set you apart.

If you’re interested in being part of a group of motivated young people dedicated to amplify our youth voice, to create a more connected community, and to organise projects to equip and engage youth, then this is the opportunity for you.

We will then review written applications and invite a group for interviews from which new members will be selected. We look forward to hearing from you!

If you’re passionate about our goal to represent, develop and connect young people in Howick, Pakuranga, Botany, or Ormiston, apply by 11:59 PM, Monday 4 October through
