The Ruapehu Youth Council (RYC) is made up of two groups of Youth Ambassadors; the Taumarunui-Ohura Youth Ambassadors (TOYA) and the Waimarino-Waiouru Youth Ambassadors (WWYA). Each group of Youth Ambassadors actively strive to represent youth from within the district and in particular, youth from their own communities.
To be a Youth Ambassador you must be:
- Be aged between 12 to 24 years
- Be able to attend one (paid) meeting a month
- Be willing to organise and take part in youth development courses and workshops
- Be able to travel to national events as required.
If you live in Ruapehu, have a passion for your community, and want to make a real difference to the lives of Ruapehu youth why not consider applying for a Youth Ambassador position.
Youth Ambassador applications are currently open.
