Marae programme up for youth awards
A youth leadership programme run from Manurewa marae has made the finals of both the National Youth Awards and the ‘I Am Auckland’ awards.
Taiohi Whai Oranga general manager Deidre Otene says it’s welcome recognition for the programme, which tries to create intergenerational change.
It’s backed by the Foundation North (previously ASB Community Trust) under its Catalysts for Change programme which provides multi-year funding to support new approaches to solve complex social issues.
The National Youth Week award winners will be announced today in Wellington and the Auckland-Council-backed ‘I Am Auckland’ youth award winners will be named on Friday.
