Puāwai

WHY – purpose

Puāwai is a nine month experience for approximately 40 rangatahi/young people aged 15-18 that is designed to:

  • Connect and develop a diverse network of “potential leaders, innovators, disruptors, drivers” in our rangatahi/young people around the region to enable them to contribute to their community
  • Develop real skills, knowledge and networks by participating in a bicultural programme with a focus on diversity and inclusion

 

WHO – young people   
  • There is no application process, rangatahi/young people are selected and supported to attend by a tuakana/youth group leader from their community.
  • Small groups/rōpū of 4-5 rangatahi/young people from a range of Māori communities, Pacifika communities, rainbow communities, disability communities and Muslim communities. 
  • Puāwai is for young people who are already demonstrating their involvement within their whānau, friends and communities but are not yet recognized for their mahi/efforts. This would include young people who want to grow skills and experience and have not yet received leadership development opportunities. 
WHAT – components

The Puāwai programme has been co-designed by a group of young people and includes; 

  • Leadership Hui x one per month from 4.00-7.00 pm on a week day 
  • Strengths finder profile and coaching – individual and group coaching with each rōpū
  • Rōpū meetings once a month
  • Activator events – youth-led practical projects in the April school holidays that could range from facilitating a public event to organizing a service opportunity together
HOW – supporters
    • Puāwai is part of www.lincproject.org.nz and is designed and delivered by a group of facilitators in partnership with Leadership Lab and the CHCH YMCA 

 

  • Funding for Puāwai has been provided by the Ministry of Youth Development, Te Putahitanga, Wayne Francis Charitable Trust and the Ben Gough Family Foundation
