Partners Porirua commenced a 10 week engagement program (Tupu Rangatahi) with our rangatahi who we are working and supporting towards Education, Employment and Training. We are concentrating on a cohort who are currently dis-engaged for various reasons, and our Tupu Rangatahi program is designed to offer weekly activities that encourages elevating engagement. We have tailored Tupu Rangatahi to end on its 10th week landing on "Youth Week".
We are not restricting Youth week to our focus cohort, however, we want to establish a strong sustainable engagement with our 'at risk' youth and celebrate Youth Week with a social and enjoyable outcomes.
