Youth Leadership Arts

Action Education is a youth development organisation with an edge. We use creative and action based methods - spoken word, drama, music and poetry - to engage young people in youth development processes that improve self-confidence, resiliency and social behaviour. These methods resonate strongly with young people, particularly those who are struggling to identify with more traditional ways of learning.

We spend our time working with young people in mainstream and Alternative Education schools, youth care and protection institutions, youth justice facilities and community organisations throughout Aotearoa.

Organisation details

Action Education

Charity
Nationwide

Action Education was established in 1981. We are a community organisation that believes creativity and our ability to express who we are is fundamental to our well being. We provide platforms and opportunities for people to connect, reflect and express who they are and strengthen community and identity through creative self-expression.

Our Vision:

Young people are free to express their diversity and inherent creativity.

Our Mission:

To utilise creative and action-based methods to engage young people in a journey of reflection and exploration. It is through this journey that they become actively involved in their own development.

Our Values:

Engagement: Action Education has a rich history of effectively engaging with young people. This is the foundation we stand on. We continue to meet young people where they are, utilise their strengths and ignite their passion.

Growth: Growth is a reflective learning process that allows for holistic integration of self.

Journey: Personal development is a lifelong journey. By acknowledging this, we can walk alongside others in theirs.

Authenticity: Authenticity is crucial for building an environment of trust so that an effective working relationship can occur.

Diversity: It is through acknowledging diversity that the richness of the human experience is celebrated. Everyone’s experience is unique and we all require opportunities to hour this.

Creativity: Creativity is necessary.
