Ngāti Tamaoho Charitable Trust will get $1 million over two years to run programmes for rangatahi in their south Auckland rohe in the latest round of He Poutama Rangatahi funding.

Social Development and Employment Minister Carmel Sepuloni says the Government is continuing to secure our economic recovery from COVID by investing in opportunities for rangatahi to get into meaningful employment, education or training.

Ngāti Tamaoho’s Toku Tai Oretanga - Realising My Full Potential course will support rangatahi to improve their cultural connection, obtain key documentation, acquire employability skills and undertake volunteer work and work experience in their community.

At the end of the eight 12-week programmes rangatahi will be supported into employment, training or further education, and receive on-going pastoral as required.

The other new programmes are Inspiring Youth Futures in the Hutt Valley, Ignite - Youth Employment Service in the Hawke’s Bay, and Learner Me Tech Camp in Taranaki.
