Tuia : Mentoring rangatahi Māori
The Tuia Rangatahi programme pairs selected rangatahi with their local mayor for mentoring and leadership development.
The relationship provides both partners with the opportunity to gain a deeper insight into inter-generational issues, cultural values and experiences. At the same time, participants will be part of, or help develop, a community service project.
Who can apply?
We're looking for rangatahi Māori (18- 25 yrs) from the Nelson region who are actively involved with their community and have leadership potential.
You must be supported by your community (iwi/hapū/marae/whānau or Māori community-based organisations).
What does it involve?
You need to be able to commit to the following:
- Attend 4 weekend rangatahi wānanga held on marae around the country.
- Attend monthly one to one mentoring hui with the Nelson City Council's Mayor and/or Deputy Mayor.
- Engage in or develop a community service project.
Applications for the Tuia Rangatahi Programme are open until 8 December.
