Hāpaitia te ara tika pūmau ai te rangatiratanga mō ngā uri whakatipu - Foster the pathway of knowledge to strength, independence and growth for future generations.
In a presentation that promises to be a breath of fresh air, members of the VOYCE – Whakarongo Mai National Youth Council (NYC), supported by CEO Tracie Shipton, will use their own experiences to share advice on how to build leadership in tamariki and rangatahi.
These care experienced young council members will discuss their journeys of rangatiratanga, and the kinds of roles available to grow young people at VOYCE – Whakarongo Mai, from the National Youth Council, to Board appointments to the Spirit of Adventure voyage scholarships.
Less theoretical and more practical, these growing leaders will share what helps their development, what doesn’t, and practical ways to support their care experienced peers to be empowered and build their rangatiratanga.
The presentation will also explore different forms of leadership, beyond the stereotypical loud and confident personalities shown in mainstream media. The group will explore different development approaches to our introverts and shy personalities, and how they can best be supported to be the type of leader they aspire to be.
