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 Involve conference, events, membership ropu, our fortnightly e-updates and social media.
- We raise the standards through Korowai Tupu – the professional association for youth workers, the Code of Ethics, creating professional development opportunities, our Rainbow Competency Framework and the development of our digital strategy, which includes developing Takiwa – a sector mapping and impact tool, a youth development organisational online self-review tool, and continuing the ensure our website and its resource centre are a one-stop-shop for good youth development information.
- We champion youth development through our annual Youth Week campaign, and collaborative advocacy work.
- We promote sustainability through strong governance, policy and systems and working collaboratively within and across sectors.
