Our Model

Our Model

Focused on empowerment rather than enforcement, the TYLA programme takes a 360˚ care approach that includes whānau (family) and community.


Our kaupapa (purpose) is that we turn their lives around and inspire resilient, skilled young New Zealanders by enriching their development on our four pillars of character and learning - whānau, health, education and wairua (spirit).


The Four Pillars 

Wairua - Develop sustained positive relationships and reconnect individuals with their community to develop positive networks and discover the essence of who they are.


Health - Improve overall health and wellbeing of the individual through TYLA core programmes and the provision of navigational support.


Whānau - Develop sustained, positive family relationships by navigating individual and whānau strengths to help them learn to make good choices and reconnect with whakapapa to develop sustainable community relationships.


Education - identify individual learning and development needs by navigating and supporting the young person's strengths, skills and relationships to support competent, connected lifelong learners within the educational and vocational environments.
