The programme serves youth aged 13-16 years and is committed to providing a safe environment for participants.

Once we receive your application we will invite you to attend an interview to discuss your skills, interests and ability to work with young people.
After your interview we will conduct background checks including a NZ Police and reference checks. Police vet requests take approx. 4-6 weeks to return a result.
Once we have completed background checks without concerns arising, an offer of place in the programme / course will be made.
