Kāpiti Coast Youth Council

New members of the 2014/15 Kāpiti Coast Youth Council.

The Kāpiti Coast Youth Council provides a voice for young people in our District.  We get youth opinions heard, organise 'by youth/for youth' events, have fun and get active on youth issues.

Projects and Activities

Proposed Youth Development Centre

A Youth Development Centre has been proposed for the Kāpiti Coast. We are currently seeking ‘Expressions of Interest’ from youth organisations interested in delivering the programmes and services of the centre.

In the draft Long Term Plan 2015-35, Council proposes to start implementing the project from July 2015 with a mobile service launched by December 2015.

For more information, what you need to include in your 'Expression of Interest' and who to send it to - see the 'Request for Expression of Interest' form below. Closing date is Thursday 23 April 2015.
