The Howick Youth Council has accomplished a lot this year. HYC is a group of young people in the Howick Region that aim to represent & advocate for young people, and improve Howick for young people. They help to develop a community for young people to trust. It has been amazing to work with them this year. They also run events to cater for young peoples' needs. This is the second instalment of the two part series of blog posts, which will discuss, and showcase them or the events they ran during 2018. The events included in this blog update are the Howick Youth Council hosted Auckland Youth Voice Network Meetup (pictured below), the HYC Visual Arts Showcase, and the HYC Performing Arts Showcase.
