Change stories for New Zealand youth

Story Behind Every New Zealand YOUth is a not-for-profit organisation that offers a free unique story telling programme, aimed at New Zealand youth. The aim of the programme is to share real life stories with New Zealand youth, to empower them to overcome obstacles, enable them to discover their true selves and make a difference in life. The programme consists of over 30 interviews with everyday kiwis (peer mentors) that share their real life experiences. Because all interviews have their own unique stories and themes, the interviews can be used to discuss many different life aspects. The materials available on this resource were collected during a research project, that was funded by the Todd Foundation about the structure that create life-changing impact. The themes that our peer role models speak of are; identity, enablement, education experience and the balance of personal development an social life.

The interviews are offered in an Udemy course for New Zealand youth, an ITunerU course for New Zealand teachers, educators and youth workers, and are freely available on Facebook and YouTube.
