Sixteen remarkable rangatahi from Whau were recognised for their uplifting mahi at the recent Whau Youth Awards.
The annual awards, funded by Whau Local Board, honour rangatahi who live, work, play, and study in the Whau – Blockhouse Bay, Green Bay, New Windsor, New Lynn, Avondale, and Kelston.
Their talents and positive community impact were recognised through categories from innovation to sports at the celebration held at Browne Street Café in Avondale.
“We support our rangatahi because we want to empower them to represent young people’s voices,” says local board Chairperson Kay Thomas.
The local board supports the Whau Youth Board.
“They are the future and listening to them is vital to building a city we can be proud of.”
