Invitation - Distinguished visitor - Wellington and Auckland events

10 Mar 15

Prof Toni Zimmerman

Distinguished visitor - Professor Zimmerman to present in Auckland and Wellington

Kia Ora everyone

We delighted to announce that University of Auckland distinguished visitor Professor Toni Zimmerman, from the University of Colorado will now be giving two presentations, one in Auckland and one in Wellington.

Professor Zimmerman will speak on 'Mentoring At Risk Youth:  a model to address problems in mentoring practice and literature'

The Professor has achieved international recognition for leading work that arranges for undergraduate students to be put in touch with at risk youth, to recognise issues such as different ethnicities and mental health symptoms and to offer constructive and tested pathways forward.  Her work in youth mentoring, using evidence based approaches addresses many gaps in the mentoring literature including community support, diversity training, and mental health concerns with at risk youth.  

These presentations are free however you will need to register to attend.  Registration details are listed for each event below.
