Regional Workshops - 2016 Youth Mentoring Guide
Sharing the Kaupapa - Regional workshops on the new Youth Mentoring Safe and Effective Practice Guide
Thanks to funding support from The Tindall Foundation, the NZ Youth Mentoring Network is pleased to offer a series of regional workshops on the recently published 2nd edition of the Youth Mentoring Guide to Safe and Effective Practice.
This edition has been updated with the latest research in effective youth mentoring practice, and the new safety checking and child protection policy guidelines introduced as part of the Vulnerable Children's Act 2014. Click here to read more about the Guide.
The revised Guide serves as a ready-reference manual, offering practical advice and guidance on how best to approach the provision of high-quality mentoring in day-to-day operations. The workshop will:
- Introduce the Guide so that you can easily use it back in your work.
- Build awareness of effective and safe practice in youth mentoring.
- Meet with others in your region, learn together, and build stronger regional networks.
Who should attend?
Youth workers, educators, mentors, mentor programme providers, central and local government agency staff and community workers - people working with young people, helping them achieve positive outcomes and to reach their potential.
There is a small registration fee of $35 inclusive GST and booking fee. You will also receive a copy of the Guide and a comprehensive workbook to take away with you.
Note: Tickets are limited to 40 attendees per workshop.
