Whakatu Community under our banner of E Tu Whakatu and Whakatu 2020 convened a Takitimu Ora Collaborative Hui at our Community Hall in May 2016. It was well attended with a great mix of employers, employees, service providers, community youth, parents and colleagues.
Our youth were marvellous and showed tremendous enthusiasm for the evening. They had questions of employment, training, jobs and education.

Employers and service providers met separately to discuss their contributions to Whakatu youth and their community plan. The leadership provided by Takitimu Ora and accessed by the Whakatu Community, really hints at the opportunities that exist for future collaborations. The feedback has been fabulous, an exciting and inspiring night for all.
