We are excited to announce that Kayana Barton has joined Youth Service as girls youth coach. Isaac Madsen and Kayana Barton : WHAT AN AWESOME TEAM !!
..... from Kayana:
For this past year I have been working with the senior girls at Whangaparaoa College and am loving every minute of it. Recently, I was offered the opportunity to work as a NEET's youth worker alongside Isaac (NEET : 16 to 18 year olds who are Not in Education, Employment or Training). I thought what an amazing opportunity to further support the female students I currently work with and also to create new connections with students who need supporting. I'm currently in my first week of this position and feel nervous about starting but also excited for what is to come, which seems pretty normal for any new job or role. My first training day at Springboard calmed a lot of my nerves and left me encouraged to trust the whole process. The people I have made new connections with has been the best part of this role so far! It is such a privilege working for CYC Trust and I feel so honoured stepping into this position.
The last few months at CYC Trust as the Youth Service Manager has been a great pleasure. I have enjoyed connecting in with the youth in and out of school and assisting then to achieve their goals, like passing their learners licence. There are many challenges facing young people and it is a privilege to journey with them and help them in their space. It is great having Kayana working alongside me as the girls youth coach, she is already doing a great job connecting and bonding with the youth and together we will achieve M O R E!!!
6 SEPTEMBER 2018 , A VERY MEMORABLE DAY FOR THE CYC TEAM AT TE HERENGA WAKA o OREWA FOR A MAORI CULTURAL EXPERIENCE What a wonderful day we had experiencing the Maori culture, we would recommend it to anyone / any team. We each brought a personal "koha"- gift for the Marae. Our "Waiata" - song was : Whakaaria mai Show Tou ripeka ki au your cross to me. Tiaho mai Let it shine Ra roto i te po there in the darkness Hei kona au To there I Titiro atu ai. will be looking. Ora, mate In life, in death, Hei au koe no ho ai Let me rest in thee.
We came away feeling honored and very mindful of NZ's wonderful heritage.
