Youth Strategy Funding

Young people are an important part of Nelson’s community, and represent the future workforce, parents, decision-makers, and community champions that help to build the fabric of the Nelson that people love.

Investing in their future wellbeing will improve outcomes for young people and the community as a whole. Council developed a Youth Strategy in order to guide its work with young people.

The priorities for the youth strategy funding for 2021 are to support:

  • Youth connections and pathways to further education, training or employment
  • Youth-friendly recreational, cultural and community events
  • Youth into governance initiatives
  • Active youth citizenship initiatives: supporting youth to help shape their neighbourhoods
