The Wellington Youth Council meets regularly to provide a voice for young people.

They work on youth-related projects and advise Wellington City Council on issues that affect the city and the city's youth.

Main roles

  • Help and advise the Council on how to help grow a great city where young people can thrive and contribute to the Council's priorities
  • Provide added insight (a youth perspective) to the Council to solve problems in a changing world
  • Develop the capabilities of its members (including leadership and engaging more widely with youth)
