With the help of a $90,000 grant from Rotorua Trust, the
Aspiration Rotorua – Rangatahi PATH Planning programme
has helped youth to create a planning tool that maps out their
dreams and aspirations, proposed achievements and values,
alongside an action plan.
Te Arawa Whānau Ora has been using PATH Planning since 2011,
which is delivered by Te Papa Tākaro o Te Arawa in conjunction
with Te Putake Nui.
“More often than not, society focuses on issues rather thanPaora Te Hurihanganui, Planning Co-ordinator
solutions. Our aim with the programme is to not focus on
the negative, but to guide our facilitators and youth into
focusing on a solutions-based pathway, enabling them to
realise their dreams, reflect on their futures and plan to
achieve specific goals.”
