Welcome to the New Zealand Youth Mentoring Network website. The Network is the national hub for the youth mentoring sector in New Zealand. We work with organisations and practitioners to to promote effective youth mentoring. We provide advice, support, access to best practice resources and training in Mentoring.
Mentoring can have a powerful and positive influence on the lives of young people as they grow and transition into adulthood. If mentoring is an area that interests you - either as a recipient, mentor, programme provider, funder or thinker we need to hear from you.
Our small group training workshops bring together diverse groups of youth workers, managers and mentors working with young people. This diversity of participants supports opportunities to learn about different cultures, values and perspectives, and effective skills for working with New Zealand's diverse young people.Read More
