times and locations
We are proud to have the PYW group operating in all 3 locations this year: Tamaki College, Panmure Community Hall and Riverside Community Hall! This term our programme covers some essential life skills and practices such as cooking, fitness and budgeting. We know it can be hard to find safe spaces for young women to hang out and are working hard to create opportunities for young women in Tamaki to relax and enjoy themselves. Come along to our weekly session to meet to people and learn new things. If you want to lead or create a group for young women get in touch with us and we’ll help you.
