We incorporate group programmes with one to one individualised support to address anti-social behaviour and set goals for the future.
The Mentor will work in collaboration with the Whanau and Rangatahi to develop personalised plans outlining strategies to address complex issues and provide support advocacy and manaakitanga for pre determined goals to be met.
The key aims and common objectives of individualised developmental plans are:
Whanau will be assessed to identify the issues and ensure that the Rangatahi is placed with the most appropriate counsellor.
The key objective of the services is to reduce the risk of re-offending by providing support and mentoring that supports healthy lifestyles and a reintegration into the education sector. We focus on the Whanau of each Rangatahi, recognising there may be Whanau issues that need to be addressed in order to support compliance and reduced risk of future reoffending.
This service includes:
The three main aspects that make up the foundation of E Tipu E Rea are: positive youth development through empowerment, mentoring support for Rangatahi and Whanau participation and tautoko.
The programme May include:
The Rangatahi mark the end of the programme by putting down a hangi for their whanau to come in for a shared lunch to celebrate their achievements over the week.
“I couldn’t have spent my holiday better”
“The programme was mean”
“Can I come and do the programme again”
“I thought the programme was going to be stink, but I had the best holiday ever”
“This is the first time I have ever been to Pelorus, my whanau don’t take me to do things and we live here”
“This programme needs to be available for more rangatahi, we need to fill the whole room”
“I don’t know what’s happened, since attending this programme he has been up ready to go. Normally I have to pull him out of bed”
“There are opportunities for the rangatahi to be a part of their culture, this is what they need in our community”
The focus on the service is to get to the root of the problem by working collaboratively with the schools to assist whanau in addressing issues that may be impacting on their Tamariki/Rangatahi attending school.
The programme runs for 2 hours over an 8 week period, (normally during the school term).
The key objective of the programme is to provide the tools within a Kaupapa Maori framework for Rangatahi to manage and to no longer be the victim of their own anger.
The components of the programme are:
The focus of the programme is to identify individual strengths and aspirations using a planned approach to address social issues and gain the skills needed to transition back into main stream education, tertiary study or employment options.
Working in partnership with the local secondary schools and integrating existing social service supports into the programme ensures a truly holistic approach that will cater for the needs of both rangatahi and their whanau so they are supported to address the wide ranging issues that currently hinder them from achieving to their full potential.
Our goals for the programme are:
Using a foundation of tikanga will support rangatahi to identify with their culture, know their whakapapa and provide an increased awareness of traditional cultural practices to lay foundations for strong morals and values. Whanau will be better parents and build stronger relationships with their rangatahi through engagement with the programme.
