Our programme features a number of renowned keynote speakers, interspersed with breakout sessions and panel discussions.

This will be followed by two breakout sessions which will explore specific aspects of the new Guide in interesting detail.
After lunch, Murray Edridge, Deputy Chief Executive, Ministry of Social Development Community Investment, will present on the new government community investment approach and what this means to the youth development sector. This will be followed by a facilitated panel discussion which will explore important local issues in the Youth Development / Mentoring sector.
