What they hope to achieve is Whanaungatanga! The Youth recognize the importance of building and sustaining relationships and friendships with each other. These relationships should offer support, conversations from which they are able to listen to one another and learn, as well as building a sense of whanau connection. In order to be leaders, Whanaungatanga needs to be built and through this event (Ice skating) they will find that within their Raise Up crew. When they are able to relate and connect, they will learn that they will be able to facilitate those with different needs in a way that is thoughtful, authentic, fun and supportive.
