INVOLVE has been the national youth development conference in Aotearoa since 2002.  It provides a space where the youth sector can come together to connect, share, learn, grow and celebrate our diversity and strengths.  This is enabled through a programme rich in contributions from across the sector.  2018 brings the first Involve conference since 2010 and is being put on in partnership by Ara Taiohi, New Zealand Youth Mentoring Network, Society for Youth Health Professionals and The Collaborative Trust.  It will be a time to connect, celebrate and reflect together on where we have come from and where, collectively, we want to go.

Applications to present at Involve are now open – we are wanting to hear from anyone and everyone keen to share their insights and learning from practice and research, or expertise in capability building.

Keynote presenter details to be released over the next few weeks. For conference details and to check out how apply to present go to bit.ly/Involve2018 or email involve@arataiohi.org.nz
