Why should students get involved in Learning Auckland? Learners at LA magazine meeting

Young people have an enthusiasm and passion for life that is hard to find elsewhere. As a student, this is often one of the most challenging, sociable and enjoyable times of your life.

It’s also a time to build up your leadership skills and be part of something bigger than your group of friends. There are exciting opportunities in social media, communication, and the arts, to really share the ideas around Learning Auckland and we know students have a valuable role to play in promoting learning in the city.

By becoming part of the Learning Auckland movement, you will grow your networks, learn new skills and have a real appreciation for the role of education and how it can expand your opportunities in life.
