Our People

Less traditional charity, more disruptive innovators who make this world a better place

From our young people, to our mentors, staff and volunteers, to our amazing business sponsors, supporters, advisers and board, the wider Ngā Rangatahi Toa whanau is nothing short of awesome. We are an interesting and varied collection of doers who believe in ourselves and each other, and in the potential we all have to contribute to changing what doesn’t work. Whether you’re a business partner, a young person who has been excluded from school, or one of our amazing artist-mentors, Ngā Rangatahi Toa creates an environment in which people can be their best selves.

We’re all from different parts of our city, we have different life experiences, we identify as different ethnicities, and have different belief systems. We represent the potential that lies in diversity. While we celebrate these differences, our true strength comes in being able to understand our similarities. No matter what your postcode, we share our human experience. We share laughter, we share suffering, and we share an understanding of our personal and collective ability to bring change.
