What is R2R? R2R is a youth project, that aims to develop young people in Carterton and the wider community. We hold events which involve fun, leadership workshops, awesome people, and great food! We want to see young people more involved in the Carterton community, and more aware of political, social, and environmental changes that are happening. We would like young people to know how to change the things they want, and be able to be a force for change. Who are we? R2R is currently being run by a bunch of Carterton's young people, and representatives from Hurunui-o-Rangi Marae, Carterton District Council, and South Wairarapa Safer Community Council. We are always on the lookout for new rangatahi to join us - so if you are aged between 12 and 24, and are keen to get involved, let us know! What's in it for me? Through this project you will gain great leadership skills, and learn the ins and outs of organising events. You will also get in tune with your community, meet some inspiring and energetic rangatahi and rangatira, and get to be part of some awesome events. This is also a great opportunity for you to fill in your CV, and gain life skills that you're bound to need at some point. Our goals: Rangatahi will develop skills and confidence as leaders. They will be given opportunities to participate in a voluntary manner. Rangatahi will be able to participate in decision making opportunities, and able to gain leadership skills. They will also have the opportunity to plan and participate in events and activities that will encourage and support their leadership qualities. Rangatahi will begin to understand the importance of creating strong ties with whanau, marae, hapu, and iwi. Rangatahi have a sense of value and importance in their community. They will feel connected to others and to the community. Rangatahi believe that they have choices about their future and opportunities to acquire leadership skills.
