Workshop – How Te Tiriti O Waitangi can make us better youth leaders

Time: 17:00 Friday
Where: Elm Hall
Style: Interactive Workshop
Interest: General

In this workshop we’ll be looking at the relevance of the Treaty of Waitangi in Youthwork. We’ll be exploring how to integrate its principals into the work we do as youth leaders, and how to engage in youthwork using the tools that can be offered by Maori world view. We’ll look at a biblical approach to the Treaty, and how that affects us as Christians, and lastly we will look at some tools we can use to teach our youth about the treaty from a Christian perspective
