Words from your Coordinator

Hello good people! My name is Vaughn Wilkins, and I’m the coordinator for the Papatoetoe and Mangere sites!

I was born and raised in the United States, and now I am making Aotearoa my home. And since it's home, I want to make people feel welcome. I love to dance, play video games, and listen to old school hip hop and R&B, so for any hip-hop heads out there, let's Jam! I have a bachelor’s degree in social work and want to use my knowledge to do whatever I can to assist the youth.

I am all about creating a space for youth to be themselves, a place for youth to relax, make some new friends and give back to the community, if that sounds good to you, come on through! I heard South Auckland has culture, style, and originality. I can’t wait to experience it myself! I can't wait to meet all of you and show some love to South Auckland!
