About us

Rangatahi

Newsroom

We are part of the Tokona te Raki – Māori Futures Collective, Rangatahi Academy. We are a team of rangatahi future makers working collaboratively to break down the systems that continue to disadvantage Māori in most every aspect of our lives. We are all about equity and creating a world where all our whānau thrive, realise their potential and fulfil their dreams. Most importantly we are For rangatahi by rangatahi. Tokona te Rakatahi, our online platform, was a response to Covid19, and acknowledging the isolation and the growing social problems for rangatahi from the extended lockdown – loneliness, anxiety, money issues, education and much more…

At the heart of our kaupapa is connecting with whānau who have felt lost or whakama and who just want to a place to kōrero and at the other end of the spectrum, those with the passion and the opinions to light the fire/seed the change that will see our future generations thrive.
