Ara Taiohi is building amazing relationships across the international youth development community.
We're working closely with the Commonwealth Youth Division with people from Australia, Malta, Zambia, India, Pakistan and Jamaica to establish an international alliance of Youth Worker Associations. We're blogging about this here, and Anya chaired a meeting of the steering committee in London in June.
We've been part of a consultation on "Optimal Youth Development Ecosystems" along with experts in youth development from around the world.
In 2016 Ara Taiohi has presented at the 2nd Commonwealth Conference on Youth Work in Pretoria, South Africa on "The Long Road to a Professional Association for Youth Workers in Aotearoa". We also presented at the "Evidencing Outcomes for Young People" conference, convened by the Victoria University of Melbourne, in July 2016.
