Whitianga Youth Space is here for young people to experience good socialisation, learning life skills, being around good adult role modelling, and is a place of safety (or positive diversionary activities) on Friday nights. It is also a safe and confidential place to discuss worries or concerns with trained professionals. This happens regularly.A particular message we promote is safety – we have ground rules regarding expected behaviours at the Space. We also have strong messaging around drugs and alcohol – we have a professional Alcohol & Drug Counsellor based there.
Youth activities for 12 to 24 year olds. Activities happen at the Space after school Tuesday to Friday. Usually Wednesdays are kayaking and Thursdays are cooking skills. Every Friday night there are different age group events such as movie nights, girl’s nights, “people’s choice”.
