National Youth Mentoring Conference - last chance to register
28 Aug 13
Our Patrons, Sir Anand Satyanand and Lady Susan Satyanand to attend conference
We are honoured to announce a new dimension to our organisation, with former Governor General Sir Anand Satyanand and Lady Susan Satyanand becoming joint patrons of NZYMN. The Satyanands are based in Wellington and bring extensive national networks, as well as particularly high levels of knowledge and commitment to key operational areas for the Youth Mentoring sector in 'diversity, education, youth and engagement'. They are looking forward very much to starting their work with us, by participating in the conference, meeting attendees and finding out how they can support and assist the youth mentoring sector going forward.
