Tuia Rangatahi Programme

The Tuia programme is long term, inter-generational approach to develop and enhance the way in which young Māori contribute to communities throughout New Zealand.

The programme involves local Mayors selecting a young Māori person from their district to mentor on a one-to-one basis, to encourage and enhance leadership skills. It is envisaged the rangatahi (young person) will be mentored on a monthly basis, involving both informal meetings and formal occasions that will assist the young person’s development as a local leader.

The relationship also provides both partners with the opportunity to gain a deeper insight into inter-generational issues, cultural values and experiences. Rangatahi will also have the opportunity to build peer networks with graduates of the programme, obtain support and receive leadership training by attending four leadership development wānanga over the course of the year.
