Ara Taiohi, peak body for youth development, in partnership with the New Zealand Youth Mentoring Network, The Collaborative Trust for Research and Training in Youth Health and Development, and the Society for Youth Health Professionals of Aotearoa New Zealand are excited to formally announce the beginning of a collaboration that will culminate in Involve 2018. Involve 2018 is an opportunity for people who work with young people to gather together to enhance skills and strengthen connections to promote positive youth development and wider sector development.
These four organisations are formally launching a MOJO (Memorandum of Joint Operations) at a sector leadership event as part of #YouthWeekNZ because Involve 2018 is a conference that will bring together a wide variety of people from across the youth sector including: youth development providers, health services, mentors, government, practitioners, clinicians, researchers, evaluators, policy-makers, educators, medical doctors, youth workers, social workers, young people and more.
