Kamp Kaitiaki

Project 2015-10-19 14:17:26 +1300

Doubtless Bay
 
Kamp Kaitiaki is an idea in response to a lack of opportunities for youth, particularly those living rurally and from low-socio economic backgrounds.  Kamp Kaitiaki is planned to offer a safe weekend away for youth aged 12-15 to engage respectfully with one another and co-create programmes and activities around the issues that affect them in the Far North.  The goal is to help develop young adults who are more connected and engaged in the future community, who can manage themselves, support one another and protect the environment.
 
There are a total of 5 "Kamps" planned as a series.  For the first series we have targeted young Maori girls aged 14 who live rurally in the Doubtless Bay area in the Far North.  We have chosen this group as a focus group to discover information around role modelling and learning engagement preferences with the forward thinking in mind that these girls will be affective role models for girls younger then themselves whom are within our target age group of 8-15 years old. 
 
The outcome will be to have strengthened the girls relationships with one another, personal development and have introduced ideas that will prepare them for the next 4 "Kamps" which are planned to be delivered leading up to Matariki (Maori New Year) in May/April.  
 
The first "Kamp" we hope to have is at the end of this spring Friday 27th - Sunday 29th November. In relation to weaving the timing of the first "Kamp" with spring we see this as sowing the seeds of the kaupapa.For delivery we have chosen a team of 5 facilitators to role model and support the girls by delivering workshops that have specifically been designed to meet the cultural and basic needs of the group, wrapped and based on holistic model approaches such as Te Whare Taha Wha and Maslow's Hiearchy of Needs.
 
Team: 
  • Our team consists of:Myself, Jamie Emery, as a youth mentor and currently studying for a Bachelor in Applied Social Work to better position myself to serve and support the youth who reside in the Far North.  
  • Hailey Tobin who is an educator in the Far North completing her Masters Degree in Matauranga Maori.
  • Christina Leef who is currently immersed in Maori entreprenuership and Indigenous Inspiring speaking events.
  • Dayna Carter who is part of the amazing team of Lifehack facilitators who specialise in social enterprise project development and well-being.
  • Christina Curley who is a multitude of talents currently working on a range of similar youth program developments - Upwards, specifically for young people aged 12-18, and Savvy Up for new professionals aged 18-25.  
  • Shanna Butler is a youth mentor whose knowledge of Taonga Takaro (traditional Maori games) will be used to assist in developing a wide range of skills mentally and physically   
  • Carolinn Stott has 15 years experience as an educator and has supported many community intiatives that are directed towards youth, while also being a mum, she has a good understanding of the social barriers that northland kids face today.
Budget:
Our budget for the first camp will be $1700 which includes resources, facilitators, venue, food and accommodation for everyone involved. 
Budget:$1700 

 

Our budget is to assist us in covering the costs of the first "Kamp" planned for the end of November 27th-29th 2015. Because the girls in our target market are expected to come from low-socio economic backgrounds.  We would like to offer 10 positions at minimum cost or no cost.  We would prefer that money not be a barrier at this point for participation.
