Jay Rerekura
Community Champion (Whanganui)
Nationality/Iwi: He mokopuna no te tupuna awa o Whanganui. Start date: August 2020 Jay's experience and expertise that has brought him to the Generator: I am invested and have been invested in my community my whole life. From my upbringing in a home that housed and raised many of my wider whānau to walking alongside rangatahi from a young age. From being involved in local community development and community action mahi to indigenous development here and abroad. For me, the next bastion of Rangatiratanga starts with kaupapa like the Generator. Hobbie/fun facts about Jay: My creative outlet is in videography and music and I love to be in the outdoors and especially in the moana where I feel at peace and connected.
