Youth Council

Kaikōura Youth Council are an awesome group of young people making a difference to the Kaikōura community. 

The Youth Council has been active in Kaikōura for a number of years. They meet regularly after school at Te Hā o Mātauranga - Learning in Kaikōura to work on youth issues, organise events and bring Kaikōura's youth together. 

Some regular events include youth blasts, games nights, Easter egg hunts at Easter time, movie nights and more! 

They also help Council engage with the youth of Kaikōura by facilitating a pathway of communication and representing youth in Council matters.

We have some pretty amazing people working in the youth space here in Kaikōura, and three of them have been nominated for an award in the 2018 Canterbury Youth Awards

Vicki Gulleford, Claudine Smith-Barker and Petra Jellyman are all finalists and will find out their placings at the awards ceremony on 31 August in Christchurch.


Congratulations to all three, as well as all the other nominees from the Canterbury region. It's great to see the fantastic work being done celebrated and rewarded. We look forward to hearing about the results at the end of August!
