Kaitohutohu  advisors

Our Kaitohutohu come from diverse and unique backgrounds, with expertise ranging from business and project management, mental health and wellbeing, tikanga and te reo Māori, alternative education, organisational management, and ecological regeneration.

Kaituao  volunteers

We have a number of Kaitūao who voluntarily offer their time and skills to various smaller aspects of the Learning Environment. Volunteer opportunities are diverse and far-ranging, from actively working on the land to working away behind a computer screen from a distance.

There are always things that need doing in an organisation with such a big kaupapa! Feel free to get in touch if you are interested in supporting our vision in any way.

We believe that the wellbeing of people and planet can be achieved through deep collaboration, and we prioritise collaborative partnerships with Māori - with iwi, hapu, and Māori-led organisations.
