The Youth Coach Team are open for referrals.

Our dedicated Youth Coaches will embark on a journey with each ākonga (student) throughout an entire school term. 

What's their mission? To elevate engagement levels, enhance outcomes, and increase ties to vital support services, as well as address the underlying causes resulting in disengagement from learning and provide early intervention.

Referral criteria for ākonga:

  • They are aged 12-21 and are disengaged, or at risk of disengaging from education, training, or employment
  • There is a need for increased wellbeing support
  • There is limited family support and/or connection to a positive role model
  • They may be struggling with acceptance or isolation from their peers

If you’re unsure about the criteria, or if there’s a young person who’s unsure whether the programme is for them, email We’re happy to chat.
