Getting Active Outdoors
Ko wai au/Who am I
My name is Jack Nelson, and I am the Active Recreation and Rangatahi Lead at Sport Otago.
The Active Recreation and Rangatahi Lead is all about rangatahi, first and foremost. Leading the active recreation and youth development portfolios on behalf of the organisation, to develop and deliver quality services, connect, and influence key organisations and community groups, and support rangatahi participation in active recreation.
Utilising community-led and co-design principles with individuals and partner organisations to understand rangatahi specific needs, the Active Recreation and Rangatahi Lead ensures activities and projects meet the needs of rangatahi and less active people to grow physical activity across the region.
The Active Recreation and Rangatahi Lead identifies participation barriers and develops alternative active recreation opportunities for youth. I have created a network of local stakeholders (secondary schools, rangatahi, youth trusts and recreation providers) to develop initiatives, that will enhance positive behavioural change and promote physical activity for rangatahi across Otago.
