Connecting Communities

Our Connecting Communities Programme supports people to become better leaders through the work that they are doing within their communities.

 Current and future leaders learn and build on everyday, practical leadership skills. Programmes can help participants with paid workplace opportunities and support them to take higher positions of responsibility within their organisations. The objective is to ‘learn by doing’ using a variety of interactive activities.  Programmes are flexible and are co-designed with the community organisation.  If you are an organisation looking to run a community workshop or series of workshops, this is the programme for you.

Creating Kai

The objective of this programme is to create a sustainable community led programme that introduces healthy cooking techniques, managing resources, and benefits of maintaining a healthy Hauora.

This will be achieved through:

  • Drawing from community based local knowledge - Using a Creating Kai Facilitator (CKF).
  • Increasing community understanding of where and how to find local support – places, agencies,  and people.
  • Educating programme participants (Kai Warriors) to build their knowledge base of food availability, cooking, making money go further and understanding Hauora and how it applies to enhance their lives.
  • Creating a Kai Map which provides a guide to local food, utilities, and support services.
  • Supplying take home recipe ideas for participants to grow their cooking knowledge.
  • Establishing a welcoming environment which encourages Kai Warriors to network with their peers and community.

The Adult Amazing Race

A new event created in 2021 after many discussions held at the original Amazing Race.

An adult Amazing Race was developed with similar concepts to the students Amazing Race. This race is designed for schools’ staff as well as work places to compete in teams amongst themselves, as a team building day for them to get to know each other better and especially for new staff to be welcomed into their new team. 

Teams will compete in a range of different cognitive, physical, and problem-solving activities throughout a specific timed period. This day can be custom built around your school's needs and can be held at venues within the community or at your own school.
