We were delighted to host Professor Michael Karcher, Unversity of Texas, leading United States mentoring researcher and co-editor of both editions of the Handbook of Youth Mentoring, recently.
We took the opportunity to record Professor Karcher's address and have included the link to the recording. It is just over an hour long and finishes just before a video clip he used from the Kung Fu Panda movie which depicts the need as a mentor to ‘trust the process - it is not about trying to fix the young person’.

In our June e-newsletter we announced that we were about to get underway with a major refresh of our Guide to Effective Practice in Youth Mentoring NZ and invited people to be part of an advisory group to review and provide feedback on the publication as it develops.
We are delighted with the response we have received and are pleased to advise we have an excellent cross section of representatives from mentoring providers, government agencies involved in mentoring, academic researchers and NZYMN trustees participating in the advisory group.
One day, 10 speakers including Nigel Latta, Henare O'Keefe and Tiki Taane. At Zeal Tall Poppy 2015, hear how local heroes are demonstrating social change in youth communities to astounding effects. Each session will include a story of inspiration, theory of change and application that you can take back to your own community.
