The Kāpiti Coast Youth Council is running a Youth Survey this year and is calling on 12 to 24-year-olds in the district for their input.
The youth-led survey is set out to capture the voice of young people in our district and the findings will provide the Youth Council an immense wealth of information to help make decisions in the future.
