The REP (the Rights Education Project) aims to equip young people in
Wellington with knowledge and about their legal rights & responsibilities. The REP is education for young people by young people, and our vision is that no member of Wellington’s youth community should suffer through a lack of awareness of their key rights and responsibilities.
Check out our prospectus here.
Who are we?
- The REP is a project of Community Law Wellington and Hutt Valley and the Community Justice Project (Victoria University law students)
- The REP is a team of 40 volunteer law students, with three student leaders providing project management and leadership
- The REP is supervised by education staff at Community Law Wellington and Hutt Valley
What training do we provide?
Our volunteers deliver a course of eight, one-hour education sessions on a range of different topics. Topics we present are Employment, Tenancy, Consumer Law, Police, Family Law, and Sex, Health & the Law, Alcohol & Drugs and Cars.
We have structured classes (with slides, teaching guides and classroom games), but for groups wanting more flexibility and spontaneity we can tailor all our modules to meet your needs and interests.
