Youth Plan engagement

You may be aware that the Ministry of Youth Development/Te Manatū Whakahiato Taiohi is engaging face-to-face with some rangatahi throughout Aotearoa New Zealand to seek their ideas on actions that could form part of a Youth Plan.

The Youth Plan will drive the youth-specific outcomes of the Government’s Child and Youth Wellbeing Strategy and is about turning rangatahi voice into action. It will complement the Strategy by focusing on specific areas that rangatahi have said are important to them. The three focus areas are rangatahi voice, mental wellbeing and leadership.

We want to make sure we hear from as many rangatahi as possible, so we have launched an online survey so they can tell us what they think. We would really appreciate if you could help us by encouraging rangatahi to take this survey – it is open until 31 October.

We will be posting a summary of what everyone has said on our website and we will also post a link to this information on our Facebook page. If you need any further information, please email or call 0508 FOR MYD (367 693).

Nga mihi,



General Manager, Youth
