Our one-to-one mentoring projects match up rangatahi with top creative talent of Aotearoa. Through intensive workshops each partnership creates a collaborative work based on the experience and cultural identity of the rangatahi. Through creativity rangatahi learn to re-think their life experience through visual arts and theatre. The personal development the rangatahi make during this time is nothing short of extraordinary.

Nga Rangatahi Toa is an award winning arts-mentoring organisation focused on empowering youth who have been excluded from the mainstream education system, through creativity and mindfulness.

We provide pathways to tertiary study, internships, employment and a supported transition into adulthood and have a 100% successful transition rate for youth who move through our programs.

More about us

At Ngā Rangatahi Toa, we believe that every kid in New Zealand Aotearoa deserves the opportunity to achieve their potential, no matter what their situation.

    We recently got married and decided to donate half of all which was was gifted to us to charity with the other half to help us set up our life together. We spent a lot of time deciding which charity to support and we settled on this one as it resonated so much with us personally - supporting our youth back home in NZ. Please keep up the good work - you have our thoughts and hopefulness that your effort will continue to have a positive impact.
