Hospice West Rangatahi meet Minister of Youth Affairs, the Honourable Nikki Kaye

We had the honour of having Minister of Youth Affairs, the Honourable Nikki Kaye visit us to meet our Rangatahi youth ambassadors,  their families, Hospice West Auckland Board of Trustees and senior staff members for our inaugural Hospice West Rangatahi launch event.

Held in our Living and Learning Centre to induct our first 11 ambassadors into the programme, our Rangatahi had the opportunity to each speak with the Minister, before she presented her thoughts on the important role they play in the growth of strong community connections.

Our Hospice West Rangatahi volunteer leadership programme is a springboard for youth to engage and grow outside the traditional classroom context and make good change in their communities. We are looking for youth between 15 – 25 years old to join us.

If you have:

  • A passion for community service and volunteering
  • Great communication and teamwork skills
  • Possess or are committed to acquiring a range of leadership skills
  • A commitment to being involved in Hospice events and fundraisers,

We are also looking for sponsors. If you are passionate about building community connections and helping the youth of West Auckland succeed through community engagement and leadership, we'd love to hear from you.
