Wellington City - Request for Interest

Mayor Justin LesterHe tono tēnei nō te Koromatua o Pōneke ko Justin Lester. E ngā mana rangatahi o te motu, tēnā koutou katoa.

I am pleased to be continuing Wellington City Council’s participation in the rangatahi leadership programme. This initiative for Pōneke rangatahi has been powerful and rewarding for past participants, and I believe that leadership development within a distinctive Māori cultural model has a positive impact on young people and their futures.

I now invite rangatahi Māori residing in Wellington to apply to be my 2017 Tuia o Pōneke. Please read the information about the Tuia programme so that you know what is expected of you during this exciting programme.

To apply, send a letter telling me about yourself and addressing the topic:

“Me Heke ki Pōneke – te wāhi whai moemoeā! Come to Wellington – the place of the possible!”

The closing date for applications is Friday 4 February 2017.

Send your letter to:

Mayor Justin Lester

Wellington City Council

PO Box 2199

Wellington 6140

Or you can drop it off at the Council reception at 101 Wakefield Street, or email it to me at mayor@wcc.govt.nz. I really look forward to hearing from you.

Ngā mihi mahana
