The foundation of the work we do in the Papatoetoe Community is in the local schools where we’ve been trusted to work with at-risk students for over 25 years. We are currently offering Tautoko services in 7 local schools. PACT Youth Workers have been able to work with vulnerable rangatahi as they work through challenges during Primary School to Intermediate and into High School. For some young people they need support or to learn some new skills for a short season but for others, a long journey with a trained and trusted mentor provides a much-needed long-term lifeline.

Mentoring rangatahi needing extra support referred by the school. We use best practice youth development practices informed by the Mana Taiohoi framework. Our three High School Youth Workers take time to build trusting relationships with the rangatahi. They help them to recognise their value and their strengths. Mentoring sessions are tailored to the needs of the small group of students they meet with weekly
