DECEMBER 2015 - YOUTH MENTORING UPDATE


Guide to Effective Practice in Youth Mentoring, 2nd Edition - progress update

Following on from the valuable advisory group meetings we held around the country a couple of months ago, our focus has been on writing and compiling the content for the revised Guide.  I’m pleased to report that we are making good progress and the timeline from here is: 

  • February – review of content; editing and proofing
  • March – production
  • April – official release and announcement

We also have some exciting news to share with regard to the launch of the Guide. Thanks to support from The Tindall Foundation, we will be rolling out a national launch programme for the Guide. This will involve a series of regional workshops around the country in the second half of 2016 and into 2017, starting with our National Conference in early June 2016. Our primary aim for these workshops will be to:

  • build awareness of effective and safe practice in Youth Mentoring - from design, to delivery and quality assurance at a regional level
  • identify and share effective practice within and across regions, and 
  • build capability and capacity within regions through this two year programme of targeted support.

We look forward to confirming a date for the release of the Guide and further details on the regional workshops early in the New Year.

Wishing you and your whanau a Merry Christmas and happy New Year

Nicki Mcdonald_optAs 2015 comes to a close, we would thank you for your continued support, and for sharing your knowledge and experience to advance safe and effective youth mentoring practice in New Zealand.

'E le sili le ta’l ilo le tapuai' – ‘One cannot achieve without the help of many.’ (Samoan proverb)

It has been a privilege to work with you and your organisations again this year. We wish you and your whanau a Merry Christmas and happy New Year. We hope that you will have a chance to relax and enjoy the summer holidays, to reflect on the year that has been and look forward to the year ahead.
