CLM Youth Wellness

Supporting Māori and Pacifica Youth’s Hauora Through Meaningful Engagement

This case study has been created for organisations working with Māori and Pacifica youth.

Developed by Community Leisure Management (CLM) with support from Aktive – Auckland Sport and Recreation, the programme involves a variety of activities and provides support for participants over an initial 20-week period all based on hauora (overall health and wellbeing).

Attendance and engagement over the 20-week programme was high, with participants attending over 80% of the weekly sessions and showed marked improvements in their fitness goals.

"It's a lot more than a gym membership – it’s about health and wellbeing and exposing them to different people they may not have been exposed to previously and trying to make them better people at the end of the day – that’s been one of our drivers to motivate them.”
