Kaikohe Youth Action Plan

The Kaikohe Youth Action Plan is an important stepping stone to better outcomes for youth in Kaikohe.

A group consisting of representatives of a number of government, local government, iwi, Māori, youth and community interests have been brought together with a single aim of working together on an Action Plan to address the issues facing young people in Kaikohe.

Following a series of meetings late 2013, the group has identified some of the key issues to tackle. An Action Plan containing 47 milestones has been compiled addressing truancy, youth offending, alcohol and drug harm, the need to increase engagement in education, training and employment, and the need for the various interest groups to work better together.

It is a unique piece of work because it brings community decision makers together with the ability to make things happen in Kaikohe. This happens because the plans were developed in Kaikohe, for Kaikohe, and the government has thrown its weight behind the initiative by directing government agencies to make it work.

The day-to-day responsibility for the Action Plan is overseen by a Project Manager who will ensure the implementation of the plan and delivery of its milestones.
