Our goals for the next four years are that:

  • rangatahi are growing their skills, knowledge and experience to fulfil their aspirations;
  • rangatahi are building resilience and confidence to be future-focused leaders; and
  • rangatahi are engaged in achievement through education, training and employment.

Over the next year we will focus on the inclusion of rangatahi perspectives and advice in policy discussions, at a local and national level. Our efforts will also include supporting education to employment pathways, so that we work towards improved Māori in Education, Employment and Training outcomes.
