About Yroa Ynot

September 2009 was when it all began – YROA YNOT was launched by the Wairoa District Council with the aim of handing back some community responsibility to our youth through leadership, events, sport and recreation.

It has since emerged as the cornerstone organisation for youth involvement in the Wairoa community.

We are supported by funding from the Ministry of Youth Development, although the governance group of our youth, aged between 12 and 24, has demonstrated a strong commitment to undertaking its own fundraising. This money has largely come from within the community and without a doubt goes straight back in.

Through events, education and mentoring, youth who would otherwise be headed for a grim future have thrived as a direct result of involvement in YROA YNOT. Fostering engagement from our youth is no easy task, but this crew has gone above and beyond expectations to take ownership of their responsibilities. The number of people who turn up to any event with a connection to YROA YNOT is testimony to this.
