Rangatahi Action Plan
“Get voices of people like me who don’t get heard much if you really want to change things.”
Rangatahi in Tūranganui-a-Kiwa
The Rangatahi Action Plan sets out our vision and funding priorities for rangatahi aged 10-24 years for the next four years.
The Action Plan was written by rangatahi for rangatahi. It draws on the mātauranga of rangatahi who are not often heard in leadership and decision-making, empowering them and valuing their kōrero.
The Action Plan has five focus communities of rangatahi. These are:-
Our priorities are:-
- Giving Rangatahi Voice and Leadership: Valuing rangatahi as leaders in their communities.
- Whakawhānaungatanga: Rangatahi supported by positive mentors.
- Creating Opportunity and Opening Doors: Replacing systems that cause poverty, racism and exclusion with mana taurite and power sharing.
- Pathways for our Futures: Rangatahi with positive views of their future with growth pathways.
The Rangatahi Action Plan will be delivered through a number of funding initiatives, two of which have been launched to date: Rangatahi-Led Fund and Champion Rangatahi Development Funding.
