Local support for rangatahi/youth
Empowering our taitamariki
Youth Coaching and Mentoring
It’s our goal to empower the taitamariki of today so that they can be the leaders of tomorrow. The role of our kaiārahi (youth coaches and mentors) is to facilitate, navigate, advocate, support and equip rangatahi in living independently and helping them thrive.
Our Youth Coaching focus is on supporting our taitamariki into education, training and work-based learning- but we do much more. Our kaiārahi provide intensive, tailored support to identify their goals and find the best path to reach them.
Youth coaches support their taitamariki in the ways they most need it, by giving practical help with housing issues, preparing for job interviews or connecting our taitamariki with their local support group. Group work and fun activities, workshops and trips complement one-on-one mentoring.
Each youth coach takes the time to get to know the taitamriki and their whānau, which means they learn to understand their unique qualities, strengths and goals, and can tailor realistic plans that move them towards independence.
As a part of our Youth Services, we provide access to assistance in partnership with the Ministry of Social Development.
Our Youth Coaching Service is focused on three specific target groups
Mā tō tātou iwi – For Our People
Our Youth Coaching Service is designed to support taiohi so they can build their confidence and increase their potential, with the aim to set them up for bright, independent futures.
