Mana Taiohi Training

Mana Taiohi Training

Mana Taiohi is a set of guiding principles that acknowledge the mana young people have, and how we can work with rangatahi enhance their mana.

Since launching the Active Recreation for Rangatahi Plan in 2021, Sport NZ has supported Regional Sports Trusts (RSTs) across Aotearoa to engage in Mana Taiohi training workshops. Sport NZ staff have also had the opportunity to receive the training through workshops in Auckland and Wellington. The workshops cover the eight principles of Mana Taiohi and how these can be applied to work with young people in a physical activity setting. Check out some of the results below.

This a journey towards embedding a mana enhancing youth development approach when developing physical activity opportunities. As part of an ongoing partnership with Ara Taiohi, Sport NZ will be supporting more partners and organisation to embed the Mana Taiohi Principles.
