Whats involved in being a 'Mentor'

Mentors on the Hawea Vercoe Leadership Programme play an important role to ensure that rangatahi gain the experience needed to illustrate capable leadership skills.

  • Mentors meet with their rangatahi at least once a month
  • Mentors provide advice and guidance in relations to career and personal development
  • Mentors support their rangatahi by providing opportunities that their rangatahi can attend.

As a mentor, not only do you assist in growing the rangatahi, but you also gain the experience of working with young people who are  passionate and dedicated to changing the world.
