Youth Search and Rescue: Learning To Save Lives

Youth Search and Rescue: Learning To Save Lives

YSAR programme was launched in Tauranga almost a decade ago by former police officer Steve Campbell and several colleagues who recognised existing search and rescue volunteers were ageing and numbers were dwindling. They designed a three-year programme that annually accepts about two dozen new students from around the Western Bay of Plenty. In February this year, the programme was delivered to young Aucklanders for the first time. https://www.unomagazine.co.nz/2018/04/11/youth-search-and-rescue/
