Connection Cafe Friday Nov 20, 2020

Connection Cafes, our informal networking sessions featuring community-generated topics of interest, were very popular in 2020.

The November session focused on youth services in the Upper Clutha, with over 50 attendees joining us for morning tea and conversation. Highlights included hearing directly from young people about the issues that concern them most; an overview of the GSD Collective’s summer fruit picking employment scheme; updates from Kahu Youth and the M!NT crew; and a roundup of the social services, counselling, and pastoral care available for our rangatahi. Our colleagues at Community Networks keep an updated list of support services, and you can always get in touch with them if you or your young person is seeking advice or connection.
