Te Whetū is a 10-week programme focussed on leadership skills, personal development, and self-improvement, incorporating a Te Ao Māori perspective. The programme is tailored to meet the needs of rangatahi based on input from their kura.
The journey begins with building connections and understanding within the group through whakawhanaungatanga, creating a safe and supportive environment for learning and growth. The programme utilises the Te Whare Tapa Whā framework, aiming to develop all pillars to their fullest potential by the end.
Participants delve into self-exploration, learning how to effectively manage challenges such as stress and identifying mana-enhancing activities and individuals in their lives. They also gain insight into their own values and establish personal boundaries.
At the conclusion of Te Whetū, rangatahi leave with a kete filled with valuable tools for navigating life’s obstacles. They have a stronger sense of self, the ability to recognise healthy relationships, and a foundation to become the best version of themselves.
