The purpose of this workshop was to identify young leaders who will be involved in the planning of Hub and a summer activities plan. Young people have been involved in the fieldtrips, so that they can gain an understanding about what activities and services could be run out of the facility and understand the processes that need to be put into place to make it happen.

Next Steps: Goal One: next steps Organise a presentation and proposal for the Community Board and WBDC regarding a part- time Youth Co-Ordinators position. – Research who else may be able to fund this role. Finalise the J.D and make sure its able to be developed as the role progresses. Continue scoping buildings and make plans for the one considered suitable by the group. Develop relationships with potential funder/stakeholders for the facility Continue to develop relationships with local organisations and groups that can assist us to offer services before the facilities are confirmed and developed. Develop a schedule/plan of youth weekend/holidays activities for this summer utilising all the local resources already available. Goal Two: next steps Assess how this service can be provided in the community for a longer period of time. What other funding may be available to support this service, what do we need to set up to make it and the accommodation sustainable? Develop an Engagement and Services Sheet with the Maori Wardens so that we can assess how this extended service is working for young people in Katikati. As offered by the Maori Wardens, develop a homework hub in this facility to help YP who don’t have access to computers or study spaces at home.

Arrange in conjunction with High School and Community Groups a Katikati Youth Awards ceremony for the end of Summer Work actively with organisations supporting YP to keep them included in activities being planned. Develop relationships with local media to promote profiles of young people doing well within the community Goal Three- next steps Continue to receiving updates from this sub-group about progress. Gather support when requested, for additional resources Continue the links with Katch Katikati and local employment opportunities Continue to voice need for the Centre of Excellence to offer links for young people who have now left school but want a career in the Horticulture Sector.
