We are aiming for an initial group of 100 rangatahi. However, we want to expand by 100% each year in order to tautoko as many young people as we can.
Currently, we are focusing on ages 15 to 25. Our goal is to expand to ages 12 to 30 in order to cater for pre-teens to young adults therefore helping them from the beginning of Highschool into NCEA, onto University and into jobs.
Our Rangatahi are primarily based in the North Island, especially in the Taranaki and Ngāti Kahungunu region. In the future we aim to ensure that we have a wide range of rangatahi from all around Aotearoa.
We are currently active on Facebook and Instagram under the name "Project Rangatahi". We aim to reach 1,000 likes on a Facebook and 500 followers on Instagram.
In the beginning of the year, our goal was to reach the top 10 of the regional teams in Hawkes Bay which we succeeded at doing by becoming a Regional Finalist team. Our next goal is to receive national recognition at the YES National Awards.
We would love to grow our connections and collaborate with more amazing people and organisations. We have begun negotiations with organisations and hope to see the results of these discussions by early 2019.
