Action Education utilises creative and action based methods to engage young people in a journey of self-reflection and development.
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.
Our Vision is to enable rangatahi to express their authenticity while growing a vibrant community that supports them. We provide programmes and platforms for them to explore their voice and develop their artistic skills through spoken word poetry.
