A digital tool to build rangatahi self-determination with hauora and health
Rangatahi – you are the voice of today and you will lead us into the future.
We're seeking rangatahi to become advisors to lead us in the design and development of a digital platform that signposts health and hauora support and resources. Our goal is to co-create a safe space for you to experience tino rangatiratanga (self-determination).
As you know, there’s heaps of resources and services in Aotearoa that support youth, but where do you start to look for what you need? We envisage building a digital platform that brings all this information together to help you easily find, use and share it.
We’re starting by running a youth survey (see below) and recruiting passionate rangatahi who are interested in: design, digital, media, leadership, project management, health and hauora, education, marketing and communications, social services, community engagement and equity. We have paid advisor positions available that will provide experience in the health space that can be added to your CVs.
We’re also looking to collaborate with organisations that work with and for youth so the digital solution will be informed, accessible and inspiring. A first step will be to encourage organisations to offer rangatahi representatives to work with us.
We all have a story to share – and we want yours! If you’re 13‒25 years old and living in Aotearoa, please fill in our survey. Your story will give us valuable insights into your interests, needs and challenges so we don’t waste time building something you don’t want. You can also register your interest in being an advisor at the end of the survey.
Plus, you can win prizes!
