Quality Relationships in Youth Mentoring

Due to many requests from across the youth mentoring network we are renewing our very popular one-day Quality Relationships in Youth Mentoring programme. This was the second workshop in our Sharing the Kaupapa series. We ran a number of these around the country during 2019. It is focused on the art of forming and maintaining relationships with young people in mentoring.
