Leading in Communities - public call out for emerging local leaders

December 18, 2014 at 10:24 AM

Community Waitakere is looking to discover, recognise and encourage local people leading in our communities. With support and input from community partners, we are offering an opportunity for emerging leaders within West Auckland to develop their skills and confidence.


Are you or do you know someone…

  • Already involved in making positive change in your community and want to grow as a leader?
  • Noticing different ways that people lead in communities but don’t feel confident as a leader yourself?
  • Keen to learn and try out different ways of leading in communities, in a group environment?
  • Part of a West Auckland neighbourhood?

If these questions are making you think YES – or even MAYBE – then Community Waitakere would love to hear from you! The programme runs for seven weeks and will be run twice/has two start dates (March 10th for Tuesday morning sessions and April 16th for Thursday afternoon sessions).


Community Waitakere believe that leadership doesn’t occur within a small group of ‘special’ individuals but sits within all neighbourhoods so please don’t be shy – this opportunity is for you even if you don’t usually describe yourself as a leader!

If you want to find out more, and to RSVP, please get in touch with Mandy Spencer at Community Waitakere ( / phone 838 7903). Spaces are very limited and we are looking for a diverse range of people from the three West Auckland Local Board areas; Henderson-Massey, Waitakere Ranges and Whau.
