Korowai Tupu o Ara Taiohi - the professional association of youth workers launched 18 May!
On Thursday 18 May 2017 over 70 youth workers and supporters joined us at Praxis, in amongst PD Fest, to witness and celebrate the formal launch of Korowai Tupu o Ara Taiohi: Te Tōpūtanga o Ngā Kaimahi Whanaketanga. It was an important step on a long journey - Judge Andrew Becroft spoke and was encouraging of the important role youth workers play in amplifying young people's voices in Aotearoa. Ben Roberts and Josh Stewart - two students from Wellington High School - spoke about how crucial youth work is and laid down a wero to us all to use the launch to take youth work to the next level. Below is a video of the launch and of youth workers from around the country speaking about what the professional association means to them.
