INVOLVE has been the national youth development conference in Aotearoa since 2002.  It provides a space where the youth sector can come together to connect, share, learn, grow and celebrate our diversity and strengths.  This is enabled through a programme rich in contributions from across the sector.  2018 brings the first Involve conference since 2010 and is being put on in partnership by Ara Taiohi, New Zealand Youth Mentoring Network, Society for Youth Health Professionals Aotearoa New Zealand and The Collaborative Trust.  It will be a time to connect, celebrate and reflect together on where we have come from and where, collectively, we want to go.

Applications to Present are now closed - submitters will be notified by 6 April - please contact Trina on projects@arataiohi.org.nz if you have any queries
