Calling all former Youth Council members

The Invercargill Youth Council wants to contact former members to help celebrate achievements over the past 20 years.

Council Community Development Manager Mary Napper said that in 1998 a group of young people produced a video showing the City Councillors what was good – and not so good – about life for them in Invercargill .

“We still have the video and it’s a hoot to watch … the fashions and music, the smoking and much more,” Ms Napper said. “Since then the Youth Council been instrumental in  the development of a smokefree area within the CBD and the introduction of the Bus Smart card. The Youth Council also holds annual leadership programmes,” she said. 

“We would like to contact former members and invite them to celebrate the achievements of the Youth Council. We are also keen to learn how being members of the Youth Council has impacted on their  lives.”
