Youth Mentoring - new one day workshop on Active Youth Participation in Mentoring

11 Aug 21

Announcing a Brand New One Day Workshop: 

SHARING THE KAUPAPA 3 Whai Wāhitanga: Active Youth Participation in Mentoring

Thanks to continued funding support from The Tindall Foundation, the NZ Youth Mentoring Network is excited to announce a 3rd Series in our highly successful Sharing the Kaupapa regional workshops. This is a brand new workshop about Whai Wāhitanga: Active Youth Participation in Mentoring.  It has been developed by Rod Baxter, a highly experienced practitioner in the youth development sector, in collaboration with others in the sector.  As with the previous 2 Series we will be running these workshops around the country over the next 12 months. 

In this new workshop you will learn:

  • more about effective mentoring, with a particular focus on the unique perspective of young people
  • ways to involve young people in training others about youth mentoring
  • how to support young people to share their experiences in mentoring
  • what helps and hinders young people engaging in mentoring
  • what needs to be in place to enable real youth participation
  • about relevant models and frameworks, starting with mātauranga Māori and locating ourselves in a global context
  • to reflect on your own, and your organisation’s capacity to involve young people in decisions that affect them
  • specialised skills, in mentors and mentoring organisations, that encourage and support youth participation in decision making.

Workshop content and structure

  1. Understanding Whai Wāhitanga in mentoring.
  2. Thinking through models of participation including indigenous approaches and Wierenga’s Star.
  3. Hearing the voice of young people in mentoring.
  4. Exploring 7 pointers for practice: a process for supporting participation.
  5. Using a new reflective tool.

Who should attend?

Mentors, mentor programme providers, youth workers, educators, school counsellors, pastors, central and local government agency staff and community workers.
