The TOHU Project is an opportunity to work towards a National Diploma in Youth Work.
The trainers will come to Taupo 4x per year for 2/3 day workshops over 22 months. There will also be monthly cluster meetings held by your local mentor. This course is offered as an option for youth workers who are already in employment - in any combination of paid and/or voluntary work.
The applicant should be over 20; have a minimum of 2 years experience with young people; be in a position of leadership and responsibility within a youth work project and have employer support.
The Orientation Day is set for Monday 17th May, 10 am - 1 pm, at Hone Tu Whare room, Taupo Library, Story Place, Taupo (directions to the Library - turn right (if you are coming from Tokoroa/Rotorua, left if you are coming from Turangi way) at our only set of lights on State Highway 1 in the middle of town - then turn right again directly into carparks - you will see the Library in front of you - a little on your right!
