BUS STOPS - Korowai Tupu

  • Renouf 2 Michael Fowler Centre (map)

A bus stop is an exciting, dynamic session format which lets you engage with presenters, and learn about a variety of topics in one go!  You'll move around the room in small groups to hear from up to four different presenters, making for a really personal experience.  

Korowai Tupu

Korowai Tupu launched as the professional association for youth workers in May last year. We welcome members who share our profession to young people, their whanau and the community that we will form genuine relationships that support positive youth development.

The bus stop stations will be:

  1. Membership: How do you become a member? (Joanah Philips and Team)
  2. Cultural competency: What does cultural competency look like? (Led by our kaiaarahi)
  3. Organisation partnerships and volunteers: How are volunteers included, and how can Korowai Tupu partner with organisations to support best practice? (Nikki Hurst)
  4. Restorative processes: What happens if someone has feedback for the association about youth work practice (celebration, growth or complaint)? (Jenna Harris and Chloe Bisley-Wright)
  5. Transforming Practice: What are the professional development requirements? (Rod Baxter)

If you or your organisation is interested in or thinking about being connected to Korowai Tupu this bus stop is an opportunity to access the information you need. Jane Zintl, Korowai Tupu Developent Manager, will be around to answer questions too.
