February 2017: Member Spotlight: Christchurch Youth Council Incorporated
What does your organisation do?
Our organisation is a youth-run incorporated society, and is an independent Youth Council. We advocate for young people, from a youth perspective.
Our main mission:
We bring young people and decision makers together, we get young people round the ideas table and we make sure that young people have a say in what's happening to the city as it's rebuilt around them.
How has being in Community House helped your organisation?
Before we moved to CCH, we had no base. Our young people were meeting once a month and we couldn't get very much done. Now we have the office (thanks to Wayne Francis Charitable Trust and the Rātā Foundation) our employee has a place to work from, store our growing amount of events kit and meet people...which generates more leads for us in local government, the youth sector and the city in general.
The support of Mike, Eileen and the team at CCH has meant that our organisation has gone from struggling to thriving and we love our office!
How can people get in contact with your organisation?
The best way to get us is either through Facebook or on our website!
