What young people say about the Future Leaders programme.
“I never really knew what potential I had. I’ve always been one to doubt myself. Even when others seen potential, I just never could. My eyes have opened so much this year. My mindset has shifted to a much better place and I am so grateful for this programme.”
Gayle, Palmerston North
“Future Leaders equips you to become a great leader, with a focus on helping our local people. The biggest changes for me were connecting with people across Aotearoa, feeling more hopeful about the future, and learning how to go beyond my own limits.”
Te Riini, Kawerau
“I’ve changed my perception of myself. I’m more confident in my leadership skills, and now find myself applying for the jobs that I wouldn’t usually because I didn’t think that I was good enough. I can now recognise my worth and what I can bring to the table.”
The biggest change for me was having my eyes opened to the opportunities for rangatahi to have our voices heard within government, to have our say and make a difference for our community and nation. And all of the out of the box thinking!
