Started in 2019, the 298 Youth Committee is a sub-committee of the Korowai Youth Wellbeing Board, working to provide a youth perspective and voice on the services provided at the 298 Youth Health Centre. We love to get out into the community to connect with the general public and find out how they feel about different topics or issues that are relevant to 298.
We engage in a broad range of activities from educational panel evenings, creating resources, researching and advising on different topics, and fundraising. Most importantly, we provide a space where young people are able to have their say!
The 298 Youth Committee recruits annually in November, and young people aged 16-25 are encouraged to apply. We meet monthly on the last Friday of every month.
If you are interested in the work of the committee or would like to join us, please feel free to reach out!
Meet The Committee Chairperson
I’m Paige (she/her). I am the Chairperson of the 298 Youth Committee and a Board Member for the Korowai Youth Well-Being Trust.
Why did you join the committee?
I started up the Youth Committee with Georgia Rossiter in 2019 to bring more youth voice to 298 and the Canterbury youth sector as a whole. I am so so passionate about our young people being heard and valued, and I am really excited to see what the team will achieve this year!
My favourite Dino would have to be a stegosaurus because they are too cute!
