Big Buddy works on the simple philosophy that boys develop more confidence and resilience when they have a positive male role model to look up to.
The New Zealand Youth Mentoring Network is a “charitable trust” who works alongside those that work with young people. We provide advice, support, access to best practice resources and professional development in Mentoring.
We are governed by a voluntary board of professional individuals with extensive experience in working with young people. Our General Manager works with a team of dedicated contractors to deliver on our organisational objectives.
