Wellington wants to double its involvement in a national Maori mentoring programme.

Mayor Justin Lester says this year it intends to mentor two rangatahi on the Tuia programme.

The Local Government New Zealand's Mayors' Taskforce for Jobs initiative aims to develop the leadership capacity of young Maori by pairing them with mayors and/or deputy mayors, who mentor them on a one-on-one basis.

Each Tuia rangatahi will be mentored for 12 months, attend five wananga around the country and undertake a 100-hour community services project.

Applications close on Friday for rangatahi aged from 18 to 25 who are already contributing to the wellbeing of their community.

Two juxtapositions of the current furore over Oranga Tamariki uplifts
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: " On Friday morning breakfast TV, Judith Collins bristled at suggestions that there was institutionalised racism inside Oranga Tamariki by simply stating, "just stop beating up kids, and you won't need Oranga Tamariki".
Could Dame Tariana Turia's musings cost Labour the Māori vote?
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury:     How hard will Jacinda and Grant make it for Willie Jackson to deliver the Māori vote for Labour again?
Latest infant death being used in Oranga Tamariki propaganda campaign.
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: I think the manner in which dead infants are being used to justify the deeply flawed child uplift policy by Oranga Tamariki is a new low in this depressing and increasingly ugly debate.
