Mataio Viliamu

Ara Taiohi Role: Chair
Current role/s: Team Leader, Youth Services, Barnardos

Husband, family, faith, loyal, community driven, collaborative, projects, sports and games!

Being a part of Ara Taiohi means an opportunity to be a part of that team that represents youth workers and rangatahi across Aotearoa.  I believe in Youth Development and the role of the youth worker being as critical as that of any other professional involved in our rangatahi’s lives.  So, being a Board member and on the Korowai Tupu Rōpū is a really special opportunity to represent youth workers throughout our motu and to continue the growth of Youth Development as a profession.
