The Public Policy Club is a non-partisan club that seeks to increase youth engagement in political processes and develop professional skills.
As a Public Policy Club Delegate, you will be part of a small team of enthusiastic volunteers, led by two executive committee members. Within your team, you will be a part of organising the fantastic initiatives, events, activities and competitions the Club has to offer.
To be a delegate, you don’t need to know a whole lot about politics – you just need to be a hard worker, a team player and excited to be a part of the Public Policy Club in 2017. This is a fantastic opportunity to make friends, give back, and develop your skills, which will be helpful if you wish to become a PPC executive committee member in the coming years.
There are 6 teams to choose from. See below for more information on each one.
This team involves helping the leaders think and execute fun concepts to promote and advertise a social event, general promotion of the club as well as thinking of ways to increase student accessibility on our social media platforms. It will also involve helping out at social events.
The Professional Development team will be in charge of hosting the PPC 2017 mentoring programme, and other fantastic events to help students develop their skills and inspire them to plan for public and private sector careers catered to policy.
The Comps team will be in charge of organising the two competitions for 2017 (Policy Brief Comp and RIS Case Comp), as well as coming up with interesting and challenging competitions for the future.
The Civics team will visit the year 13 cohorts of certain low decile schools in Auckland to teach them about the importance of voting, how to vote, and how to apply informed decision making when deciding who to vote for.
The graphics team is in charge of helping the SoMa team’s vision come to life. The team will create posters, cover photos, graphic templates and other materials for each of the Club teams to ensure all outgoing materials of the club are up to standard.
Team members will create informational political content in a variety of forms (written, infographic, quiz) to keep students up to date with key issues facing society.
Applications for a delegate position are now open.
Applications close on the 17th of March 2017.
