SCNZ Youth Tour Mission Statement
The SCNZ Youth Tour is an educational and cultural experience aimed at inspiring young New Zealanders to think and act as global citizens. Led by members of the SCNZ Youth Subcommittee, the tour operates on a “by youth for youth” basis, offering delegates the unique opportunity to engage in peer-learning and leadership development outside of the usual teacher-student dynamics. The SCNZ Youth Tour aims to showcase the bilateral relationship between the visiting and host country and immerse delegates in the educational, cultural, government and business life of the cities visited.

Timeline
In April 2018, 9 senior students from Wellington region high schools will be given the opportunity to be part of the inaugural SCNZ Youth Tour, visiting Shanghai, Beijing, Taizhou, Hangzhou and Xiamen over ten days (not including travel days). Applications for the Youth Tour opened on 21 April 2017.
