RANGATAHI COURSES


Courses that promote the transition from Rangatahi to Rangatira!

From our humble locations on the magical Tairāwhiti or east coast of Aotearoa we are able to implement our courses which work with our rangatahi (youth).

We use basic principals and foundations adopted and adapted from our operation teams careers in team building environments and leadership courses.

We bring experts from our local area in to teach about our ngahere (forest) and moana (ocean). They engage with our rangatahi and bring life skills relevant to our whenua on the coast. This gives our courses a unique experience and our rangatahi a sense of belonging.
