Our final workshop in the regional series was to be held in Blenheim mid-September, however due to road closures and disruptions in the Marlborough region presently, we have decided to postpone this workshop until State Highway One reopens hopefully by the end of the year. In the interim we are pleased to offer a further workshop in Christchurch on the 20 September due to the many requests we have received to do so.
We will keep you posted on the new date for the Blenheim workshop just as soon as we set it so be sure to keep an eye on our website or 'like' our facebook page to keep up to date.

International news - A Fresh Look at Logic Models: Enhance and Amplify Their Value
The United States based National Mentoring Partnership run regular Webinars for the sector. Their August webinar took a fresh look at Logic Models and how to enhance and amplify thier value.
In our recently published Guide to Youth Mentoring, we talked about the value of building a programme logic model (page 28) to depict what your programme is looking to achieve. This webinar goes beyond the basics of developing logic models and theories of change, and look at them through a new lens to amplify their impact.
