Draft shared values for organisations working within the youth hub Guided by the Principles of Youth Development 2002 Mission Statement: NO WRONG DOOR - NO CLOSED DOOR EVERY DOOR THE RIGHT DOOR Is shaped by the big picture by; being knowledgeable about the impact on youth of policy, practices and systems in Aotearoa. providing a collective voice to increase advocacy for the individual and with systems that impact on youth Is about young people being connected by; ensuring services are youth centred through; flexible times to meet, peer relationships & support, with comfortable and welcoming meeting places. acknowledging young people are part of systems and may need support to maintain, repair and/or make new connections to those systems.
Is based on a consistent strengths-based approach with a focus on what young people can do, not what they cant do recognises that skills for living are part of ongoing development Happens through quality relationships where Collectively, the organizations are committed to the long journey (up to 24yrs of age) adult relationships with young people are based on warmth, acceptance, respect and treating them as partners in the relationship Is triggered when young people fully participate through representation at all levels of service provision through to an inclusion in an advisory group leading to board membership. (This should happen at individual, organizational and Hub levels) and requires young people to be informed, and be shown to have a measurable influence in outcomes for youth. It needs good information from existing research to ensure best practices guide planning for work with youth to ensure ongoing research/evaluation of all the services within and as part of the Hub.
