Leadership

Rangatiratanga 

Our Leadership Programme is an exciting leadership programme based out of the YMCA in Whanganui, currently offered to school-aged youth and young adults.

 We use adventure-based learning and group facilitation techniques to teach basic leadership concepts such as communication, group dynamics, cultural awareness, and problem solving. Participants can then use these skills to further themselves as leaders within their school and community. These leadership courses are designed to be a positive and fun experience for students that boost self-confidence and empower youth to achieve in the classroom and beyond.

In 2017 we will be launching a Leadership Programme delivered in Te Reo Maori, adopting traditional games and tikanga as well as teaching basic leadership concepts.
