Ōrākei Youth Expo

We are the Youth of Ōrākei, a youth council made up of 26 young leaders who are supported by the Ōrākei Local Board to represent the youth in our community. We accomplish this by delivering engaging projects throughout the year. Last year, we successfully delivered nine projects, interacting with over 1500 youth. 

This year we are delivering a project called the Ōrākei Youth Expo.The event aims to connect young people to arts, community and sports groups within Ōrākei. This is a great chance for young kids to learn about all the amazing activities our community has to offer. The event will be on December 9th at the Landing Okahu Bay (8 Tamaki Drive, Orakei, Auckland 1071) from 12pm to 5pm.
