Involve 2018 National Youth Mentoring Conference

3 exciting announcements - Involve 2018

We are very excited to announce the keynote speakers for Involve 2018; early bird date change; and further discounts to tickets that can support more people to come! 

Keynote speakers:

We know the important role keynote speakers play in a conference -  how they set the programme and speakers for each day, as well as how each fit in with the big picture of the theme - 'looking back to move forward'.  So without further ado - we can announce the exciting keynote speakers!  

We are very excited to have these five amazing people a part of Involve - they will help to make this one unforgettable and EPIC hui!

Earlybird tickets:

We have extended our EARLY BIRD TICKET date from May 7th, to July 13th in order to enable people to access budgets from both financial years at the reduced price. Register online now. 

Bulk Discount: 

We are now offering a BULK DISCOUNTof $100, for every five applications from one organisation in one registration. With this additional discount, we hope this allows the conference to be more accessible to the sector. 

Finally, a big thank you to the 152 applicants who applied to present at Involve 2018 and the patience everyone has shown as we have worked through the complex but very importance process of selection. We have now completed this process and all applicants have been advised of the committee's decision. A final programme will be published shortly. So watch this space.

Comments from previous attendees:

"The workshop is really practical. It taught me how to talk with our mentees more effectively and ask the right questions."

"It gave me really useful activities that we can use with our mentees."

"I really enjoyed sharing korero with workmates and looking at the theory behind how we work with young people."  


Local news: Conversations for Change - free resource for those who work with young people 

The Conversations for Change resource has been created by Mind and Body Consultants, as part of the Like Minds, Like Mine programme which is managed by the Health Promotions Agency (HPA). 

It is designed to reduce stigma and discrimination connected to mental distress and to increase social inclusion.

It contains comprehensive facilitator's guides to five group activities which challenge stigma and discrimination, and generate safe conversations about mental distress.

The resource aims to encourage young people to reach out for support, and to include and support each other. The activities are creative, lively, and easy to implement.

All resources are fully downloadable at rethink.org.nz/Conversationsforchange


Perfectionism, what it is and 5 ways mentors can help their mentees shake it.

With perfectionism on the rise, it is increasingly likely that, as a mentor, your mentee may be struggling with perfectionism and its related effects. Fortunately, there are some concrete steps that you can work with your mentee on to help them overcome the challenges that a societal preoccupation with perfection can bring about in their lives.
