Leadership Weekend 2020

Leadership Weekend 2020

CanTeen’s annual leadership weekend took place at the end of February in West Auckland. The weekend allowed 30 young people from all over Aotearoa to come together and learn valuable leadership skills which they’re able to take back to their communities and peers who have had their lives impacted by cancer.

At CanTeen we empower young people to support one another through their cancer journeys and beyond as the impact of cancer lasts far beyond diagnosis and treatment.

Youth Leadership is central to who we are, what we do and how we do it. Through local and national leadership opportunities, we help young people develop communication skills, self-worth and confidence for the future. CanTeen also provides training and mentoring so young people can support other young people going through a similar experience who need extra support in hospital or at home.

The weekend offered the opportunity for young people to connect with one another, complete workshops and games and meet our Board and plan what is needed for the future CanTeen. No one knows what CanTeen should offer better than young people who have been through cancer journeys themselves
