As the peak body for youth development, Ara Taiohi supports our members and others who work with young people to be more connected, effective and accountable.
- We connect the sector through our website to the latest youth-related happenings, our fortnightly e-updates, our caucuses, Building Pathways wānanga and Te Hautaki regional hui.
- We raise the standards with our training database, external supervisor directory, resource centre, management of the Code of Ethics, youth work professionalisation and professional development projects.
- We celebrate young people through the annual Youth Week campaign. We champion youth and youth development locally and nationally through policy and submission support and public engagement on issues affecting young people and the sector.
- We promote sustainability by supporting our members, providing access to funding through our Youth Week and Queer/Trans Grant and information on other funding avenues.
