YMCA Southland youth leaders Anna Roberts (left) and Jenna Moynihan reach Mount Luxmore on the Kepler Track in Fiordland. Both girls are working towards their Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Hillary Award. Jenna has recently achieved her silver award, which was presented by Southland District Mayor Gary Tong. The awards required regular participation in healthy activities and community service, plus learning several skills and putting these into practice, youth leadership instructor Tony Shore said. Both girls assisted with leading junior tramps and sporting events, he said. ‘‘Our youth leadership programme encourages local youth in growing their potential to become ambassadors for our community.’’
