INVOLVE 2021 Reunion - Wrap up

We hope that this message finds you, your team and your whānau safe and well at this time

It is strange to think that only one week before lockdown began, we gathered with nearly 1000 of you at INVOLVE 2021 Reunion. We are so grateful that the conference was able to go ahead in its hybrid format as we know that gathering in person was important for a large number of you, as it was for our team. We hope that the connections, kōrero and professional development you received at INVOLVE are helping to sustain you whilst were in lockdown.

Needing a boost whilst you are home?

After discussions between our incredible MOJO partners (Ara Taiohi, The Collaborative Trust, SYHPANZ and NZ Youth Mentoring Network), and following requests from some of our friends in the youth community, the INVOLVE team has been thinking about the ways we can support you all during the remainder of our lockdown time

Watch the INVOLVE Keynote Sessions again

What amazing keynotes we had for 2021! There was a wealth of knowledge, perspective and insight shared during these sessions. So much so that, even if you managed to attend all four sessions live during INVOLVE, you might have missed some of the goodness weaved in our keynotes’ kōrero.

As our gift to the sector during this lockdown, we will be releasing each of the Keynote Session recordings to you completely free so that you can rewatch these sessions and share them with your colleagues. We will release one session over each of the next four work days.

Which means…
We are releasing our first one right now! Click here to watch Keynote Session 1: Rod Baxter

Each video is hosted on the Ara Taiohi Youtube channel. Make sure you subscribe to this, or that you keep checking the INVOLVE social media pages to see when the other Sessions are available for viewing.

Can’t wait until August? INVOLVE Webiner Series, February 2021

Neither can we!

That’s why we have pulled together an exciting new opportunity: the INVOLVE Webinar Series!

Every Wednesday in February, we will be hosting an INVOLVE-style webinar set to help you learn, grow, and connect. These hour-long sessions will be informative and engaging ways for you to hear about different mahi happening in the sector, extend your knowledge or practice, and find connection with others tuning in.
