Sharing the Kaupapa - Regional Workshops on Quality Relationships in Youth Mentoring - Overview

The New Zealand Youth Mentoring Network has designed this brand new workshop about Quality Relationships in Youth Mentoring.

In 2016 we released the second edition of our Guide to Effective and Safe Practice in Youth Mentoring. Since then, we’ve delivered 18 regional Sharing the Kaupapa workshops about the Guide with 522 practitioners and 262 organisations.

The feedback from these workshops was extremely positive. Participants asked for more and asked us to return to the regions visited. Hence, we have created a brand new workshop based on the demonstrated desire to learn more about mentoring. Participants specifically requested to explore more about the art of forming and maintaining relationships with young people in mentoring.

This workshop has been developed collaboratively and through relationships. We have acknowledged diverse perspectives and a range of experiences in youth mentoring. The workshop and accompanying workbook were written by Rod Baxter, with active support from the NZYMN Trustees, Ross McCook and specialist advice from Yvonna Ualesi, Grendon Boynton and 20 other advisors from across the motu.  

Workshop fee: $35 inclusive GST and booking fee.
