Renee Spencer Seminar held on the 22 November 2012

The NZ Youth Mentoring Network were delighted to host Renee Spencer, an internationally recognised expert and practitioner in youth mentoring, for a special 2 hour seminar held at the University of Auckland, Epsom Campus on the 22 November 2012.  Renee’s topic of discussion was ‘Current trends and issues in youth mentoring’.  She shared with us eight lessons she has learned through her work in the field of youth mentoring.  This was very stimulating and affirming.
