Our stellar line up of presenters cover the spectrum of youth development in New Zealand.
Some speakers you will hear from:
John Kotoisuva, Founder / Chief Executive, C-Me Mentoring Foundation
In his address, John will share the outcomes his team are achieving through their innovative “Trades At School” programme which manages the students transition from secondary school into skilled industry employment and higher education in partnership with community, families, schools, industry, and industry training organisations through a holistic approach to individual development.
Claire O'Connell, Head of Sales, Facebook NZ
'Is there a place for Social Media tools in youth mentoring?' Claire will share some insight into how teens are using social media in New Zealand, and some ideas on how it could be used to facilitate Youth Mentoring.
Jason (Jay) Mareroa, Deputy Chair, Auckland Youth Advsory Council
'Yesterday’s mind-set vs. today’s reality.' Allowing young people space to participate in decision-making has always been advocated but only ever existed as a myth. Today young people in Auckland have slaughtered the myth and are reclaiming ‘authority’, translated to mean, authorising their own entity!
As part of authorising their entity, young people in Auckland have evolved their existence and ensured absolute integral participation at the table where it counts. No longer a tokenistic voice, young people in Auckland sit around the decision-making table in one of the most influential positioned seats in local government history.
