Law for Rangatahi

Knowledge is power.
Information is liberating.
Education is the premise of progress,
in every society, in every family.

-Kofi Annan (previous secretary-general of the United Nations)

Law for Rangatahi

Our "Law and You" programme is aimed at providing young people with information on basic legal rights and responsibilities. 

The objective is to empower and aid youth with transitioning into adulthood. It is also a useful resource for parents and those who work with young people. 

Some of the topics covered are “Your Job Your Future”, “Renting Your Own Place”, “Licencing, Cars & Driving”, “Money Wise”, and “Technology Users”.  

This brief workshop is presented at high schools and alternative education providers throughout the Waikato. We often deliver a one-off seminar in assemblies but also cater for consecutive sessions such as "Gateway" or "Life skills" programs. 

"My favourite part of the session was learning about my rights and about truck shops".
