Our young peopleŌ tātau rangatahi

Napier - famously - is a great place to grow up. But we want to do more for our young people and ensure their formative years are fun, nurturing and fascinating.

Napier's young people

Napier city offers a range of activities and opportunities for young people. Napier City Council encourages youth development in several ways including providing recreational facilities, leadership development, programmes, events and activities.

Napier Youth Strategy

Developed over several years, the new Napier Youth Strategy was formally adopted in December 2018. It prioritises six objectives which build on the Youth Services Plan 2012 and have been further shaped by the Napier Youth Council.

Objectives - Ngā Whāinga

1. Healthy and safe

Young people are thriving in all aspects of their lives, are well supported and know how to get help. 

2. Leadership

Young people have opportunities to participate and achieve their goals.

3. Education

Young people are engaged in education and every young person has options for learning.

4. Employment 

Young people are ready to work, know what they want to do and how to get there.

5. Community

Young people know how to get involved in their community.

6. Fun

Young people have access to a range of activities and are able to have loads of fun.

Youth Centre Pop-ups

Napier City Council supports several Youth Centre Pop-ups during the year. For a few days at a time, in a Napier suburb, we transform a trailer into a funky youth centre, a music studio, skating base, to a computer hub and everything in between. The pop-ups are facilitated by Zeal  on our behalf, who employ local young people to run the project.
