New Zealand Red Cross Youth Engagement Strategy

The New Zealand Red Cross Youth Engagement Strategy sets a clear direction for how Red Cross engages with young people in the future. It brings to life a responsive and inclusive approach for  volunteering, humanitarian advocacy and partnering with rangatahi. It  builds on the vision of New Zealand Red Cross’ Strategy 2030 and the International Federation of Red Cross Strategy’s goals for engaging with young people. 

Our vision for Youth Engagement

Te Pae Tawhiti Mō Te Tuitui Rangatahi*

New Zealand Red Cross partners with young humanitarians from diverse backgrounds as a key voice in inclusion and equity to increase our humanitarian impact. Rangatahi are heard and their hopes and ideas are part of shaping their future and that of New Zealand Red Cross. Rangatahi have deep connections, strong community and wide networks supporting them as humanitarian leaders

*Rangatahi in the context of this document describes young people. In the global Red Cross Red Crescent Movement, a young person is anyone under the age of 30 years old.
