Youth gather to shape Bay of Plenty's future

Monday, 21 May 2012 1:30 p.m.

Students from schools throughout the Bay of Plenty will gather in Pāpāmoa to help shape our future at this year's Youth Jam.

The two day event gives young leaders the opportunity to see how the region can be a part of their future.

The event, which the Bay of Plenty Regional Council hosts, will ensure about 60 students spend time looking at the future of the region.

Students from Katikati, Tauranga Girls', Pāpāmoa, Kawerau and Edgecumbe Colleges, and Western Heights and Whakatāne High Schools will share their vision for the Bay of Plenty.
