Help Us Celebrate!

A massive shout out to our intern staff members for graduating:

Dani with his Certificate in Youth Development.

Nella and Talita completed their first year and going into diploma next year.

Nat with his diploma of Youth Development.

Gee with his Bachelor in Youth Development.

We are so proud of the blood, sweat, and tears you have poured into enhancing the mana of our rangatahi and Kura. Mihi also to your support villages and those who joined the journey and are no longer with us! We honestly appreciate you all much!


Code of Ethics

Our City and Porirua Alt teams linked up for a day of training around the youth work code of ethics. Simon from Ara Taiohi ran the day for us, and there was no shortage of laughs, activities, robust discussion and even some spirit fingers! 

If you want to know more about Ara Taiohi and what they do, check them out here. 


Porirua Alt Boxing

Been cool connecting with the Cannons Creek boxing academy this term. Our students have learnt how hard boxing training really is, and the staff have been reminded of their age!

Shout out to the team at the academy. You can check them out here.


Porirua Alt Exhibit

Today our students got to share the journey they have been on this term with Zeal through an exhibition of photos. 

It was a special moment shared with whānau and friends.
