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.

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 proposed to start implementing the project from July 2015 with a mobile service launched by December 2015.
