Youth Development Coordinator - Shift

Tahlia has been doing youth work for 4 years, alongside completing her Diploma in Youth and Community studies with Praxis.

Her past experience has included working in a high-school for two years with the organisation 24/7 youth, running events, mentoring young people and being involved in the local community.

Tahlia has come into Ignite as coordinator for the ‘Shift’ programme in Porirua, while also outside of this is leading a girl’s youth group in Cannons Creek. The kaupapa of the Shift programme is to; increase awareness of wellbeing through relationships, education, role modelling and providing fun opportunities at low costs. With the overall focus to empower young women by inspiring and growing leaders to become contributors and change makers within their own communities

Her heart is to see young people discover their passions, purpose and develop life skills for them to build a strong foundation in their lives for their futures.

We aren’t supposed to do the journey alone but together we build a place of whanaungatanga and strong community.
