Te Kaha O Te Rangatahi Indigenous Youth Hub is a registered Charitable Trust & was established in 1992 by a collective of dedicated women in response to concerns about teenage pregnancies. 

Our One Stop Hub provides Youth Knowledge, Youth Health, Youth Wellness,  & Youth Development to rangatahi within the Counties Manukau region.

Our Vision
Mana Rangatahi

Our Mission
Kia whakapumautia te oranga o te rangatahi,
Kia tupu, kia hua, kia puawai

To Enhance the Well Being of Youth, To Develop, Grow and Prosper

Our Pou are:
 – Rangatahi Knowledge
Rangatahi knowledge explores rangatahi abilities and capabilities and placing rangatahi and whānau into a position of prosperity. This includes wānanga or building knowledge in:

  • Pūtea – Basic Financial Literacy
  • Planning / Goal Setting
  • Health & Disability Code of Rights

Patatee – Rangatahi Wellness
Rangatahi wellness is the vehicle of understanding and navigating rangatahi feelings and emotions.
It's re-connecting to what they are disconnected to, ā hinengaro, ā wairua. This includes wānanga in:

  • Mental Wellness – Providing tools for rangatahi to navigate their feelings and emotions using creative outlets.

Hinau – Rangatahi Development
Rangatahi development will excel rangatahi into flourishing and developing an extensive tool kit to put their best foot forward when making decisions. This includes wānanga and support in:

  • Tohu Mātauranga (Education / Study) – Assisting rangatahi to identify a career pathway and study options towards this.
  • Mahi (Employment) – Providing practical skills to help rangatahi into employment
  • Pakihi (Business ownership - Entrepreneur) – Connecting rangatahi with resources and networks to assist them with growing their own business
  • Kāinga (Home Ownership) – Connecting rangatahi & whānau with networks to assist them in their journey towards home ownership

Kawariki – Rangatahi Health
Rangatahi health provides a space to increase awareness and understand the importance of mātauranga, to ultimately become advocates and change agents. This includes wānanga and support in:

  • Te Ara Tika ki te Hōkakatanga (Sexual Health) – providing information on sexual health for Yr 5 – 13 within education settings, an 18+ space for rangatahi to further their knowledge, as well as group settings and connecting rangatahi to sexual health services
  • Taurikura (Physical + Nutritional Health) – building rangatahi knowledge and awareness of nutrition & physical activity
  • Hā (Respiratory) – Connecting rangatahi to local health providers, and also assisting with Auahi and Vape Kore journey
  • Pā Harakeke (Hapūtanga & Parenthood) – Antenatal wānanga for māmā and their partners / support person and postnatal activities

These ingoa are derived from the tongikura from Kingi Tāwhiao:

Maaku anoo e hanga tooku nei whare.
Ko ngaa pou o roto he maahoe, he patatee.
Ko te taahuhu he hiinau.
Me whakatupu ki te hua o te rengarenga, 
Me whakapakari ki te hua o te kawariki.

I shall fashion my own house. The pillars inside will be of maahoe and patatee, and the ridgepole of hiinau. Those who inhabit the house will be raised on rengarenga, and nurtured on kawariki.

Each wānanga across our Priorities / Pou consist of three Reanga:

Kia Tupu - To Develop
Kia Hua - To Grow
Kia Puawai - To Prosper

​These reanga mean that we can provide wānanga that meet rangatahi where they are in their journey. Whether at the beginning of the journey, or further along, we partner with rangatahi at the level that is suitable for right now to work on progressing towards their own moemoeā & goals.
