Nau mai haere mai, welcome to New Horizons Aotearoa
We are a community project working with rangatahi considered at-risk and/or vulnerable. Schools select students of years 7 and 8 (intermediate school aged) to participate. We provide nurturing mentorship using tools of praise and encouragement to build confidence while creating opportunities to learn new skills in a number of industries.
We are partnering with four Taranaki schools who pick rangatahi that meet our kaupapa/criteria of at-risk and/or vulnerable. The programmes are run at the school with a selection of elders and others providing guidance, praise and encouragement to our rangatahi. All mentors are police vetted and inducted into our programme.
