Key MTFJ projects in Kaikoura

We have recently held a Youth in emergency services programme with outstanding success. 15 young men and woman took part in a six week course working with our local St Johns, Coastguard and Fire Brigade. Culminating in a weekend course involving all three services. The young Adults are now volunteering for a further period, all three service groups now have  some young volunteers wishing to stay on board and those attending have gained a range of skills that help them become better employees in the future.
