Aroā - Attitude

Since the 1990s, the team at Attitude has been visiting schools across Aotearoa, driven by a passion to inform, inspire and educate our rangatahi. Recently, Te Pūtahitanga o Te Waipounamu has been proud to fund Attitude as part of our Aroā workstream, to create a sexual health workshop with a kaupapa Māori lens.

The magic of the Attitude kaupapa is their ability to completely understand how to communicate to young people. Their messages partner well with the current health curriculum, but the information is presented with a winning formula that has schools – both kaiako and akonga – looking forward to their visit year after year.

“Our genuine hope is that young people are more resilient, and the next generation are as healthy as I can see it being.” – Tamatea Wihongi, Attitude Presenter.

Our Aroā workstream is focused on improving the health and wellbeing of whānau. We want to help whānau in Te Waipounamu overcome barriers to the availability, accessibility, affordability and appropriateness of healthcare.
