  • Education in Te Reo Māori: Our Pou Whirinaki team can deliver education in te reo Māori at your local marae, kura kaupapa, alternative education centre, or other wāhi Māori. Pou Whirinaki can also deliver in English if that best meets your needs.
  • Governance and Te Tiriti o Waitangi: We run education targeted at governance and managers of community groups, such as training in Te Tīriti o Waitangi, and understanding charity law.
  • In your suburb: We regularly arrange talks at local outreach clinic locations. Keep an eye on our Facebook page to see if there are any upcoming talks in your area.
