Slice of Youth – Youth Connect Edition
Date:6:00pm to 8:30pm on 10 October 16
Christchurch Youth Council is teaming up with Hurunui Youth Council and Youth Voice Canterbury to run a special edition Slice of Youth event! We're running this Slice of Youth in the style of a Youth Connect, bringing together young people from both the community and various organisations to catch up, reflect on the stresses we go through during this tumultous period, and take the opportunity to network.
Monday, 10 October is the start of Mental Health Awareness Week, and we are acutely aware of our wellbeing at this time of the year. Mental health carries a stigma which needs to be removed, so let's have an open discussion regarding mental health, how we treat it, and learn some top tips about how to care for your wellbeing.
Inspired by Coffee and Jam by Ministry of Awesome, Slice of Youth is a networking event for young people to find their passion. Our vision is for Slice of Youth to present an opportunity for rangatahi to listen to inspiring people doing fantastic things in their community, mix and mingle with fascinating people and organisations, and get involved in whatever they're passionate about!
The all important part of having your say and finding out more is through our shout out session, a 20 second spot to shout out your opportunity, or what you're currently looking for in your project/organisation/general life. This is not just limited to the theme of the evening, and all opportunities are welcome!
With plenty of mingling time, and food, there is a chance for everyone to have their questions answered, find something to get involved in, and making great connections with inspiring people. This isn't just open to young people, anyone who has an opportunity is welcome to come along to do a shout out and network. Don't have something to shout out? No worries, come along to listen and learn!
