The YROA YNOT attended the "Connecting With Our Future" Expo held in Flaxmere on Saturday 3rd September
We were invited by the leadership crew of youth in Flaxmere who have been a driving force behind this event (which is their first). The aim of the event was to create a platform for connecting their community and local services. This would also kick off their aspirations of establishing their own Flaxmere Youth Leadership Organization.
The day kicked off with the crew up early travelling to Flaxmere from Wairoa. After a quick breakfast stop we arrived at the Flaxmere Community Centre. We were warmly greeted by the Flaxmere Crew and quickly got into various actions roles. Catering, Marshalling, Interviewing, Photography and livestreaming on our 'Facebook' and Snapchat.
Once the events, debrief and cleaning were wrapped up, both crews took off to Ocean Spa for relaxing & bonding time together. After pizza & showers at the pools, the challenge began for the Ten-Pin Bowling followed by a movie night & sleepover back at the Flaxmere Community Centre.
The crews then said their goodbyes as YROA YNOT slowly left back to Wairoa.
