Rangatahi Tumeke is a youth leadership programme designed to establish a strong sense of cultural self in Murihiku. The purpose of the programme is to ensure all rangatahi have a strong sense of hope and purpose, that is the foundation of building a pathway into early adult life.
The programme has been designed to:
- Provide a leadership pathway for rangatahi learning, development and growth.
- Enable visible Murihiku rangatahi leadership, supporting Mātauraunga Māori and opportunities for Ngāi Tahu whānau.
- Create a cohort of rangatahi leader/navigators who are supported, and in turn support future rangatahi leaders.
- Be part of a wider foundational leadership framework for life long development.
- Grow capability and capacity to support the Murihiku Regeneration vision and aspirations.
