Leading In Communities


  • Do you live / work / play in the Henderson-Massey, Whau or Waitakere Ranges areas?
  • Do you already get involved in community projects or would like the skills to do so?
  • Do you want to sharpen your tools to make positive change in your neighbourhood?


Leading in Communities is a free training programme to grow community leaders and consists of eight interactive workshops facilitated by highly experienced practitioners.

Community Waitakere is looking to discover, recognise and encourage local people leading in our communities. With support and input from community partners, we are offering this (free!) opportunity for emerging leaders within West Auckland to develop their skills and confidence.

Are you or do you know someone…

  • Already involved in making positive change in your community and want to grow as a leader?
  • Noticing different ways that people lead in communities but don’t feel confident as a leader yourself?
  • Keen to learn and try out different ways of leading in communities, in a group environment?
  • Part of a West Auckland neighbourhood?

If these questions are making you think YES – or even MAYBE – then Community Waitakere would love to hear from you!

Community Waitakere believe that leadership doesn’t occur within a small group of ‘special’ individuals but sits within all neighbourhoods so please don’t be shy – this opportunity is for you even if you don’t usually describe yourself as a leader!
