Lifehack - a systems level intervention for youth wellbeing
cutting my teeth in a hub for youth wellbeing initiatives
Lifehack was a systems-level intervention in youth mental health and wellbeing in Aotearoa New Zealand. Over 2013-2017 we grew the capacity of the system to support the wellbeing of young people, with an emphasis on co-design, prevention and capability building.
With Lifehack I dived into the worlds of facilitation, wellbeing, codesign and social enterprise - and it's those worlds that I bring into my work today.
Guiding Youthlaw through a codesign process
In 2018 I guided Youthlaw through a codesign process to involve more young people in their governance and operations, and to better tailor their services to young people's needs and experiences.
As a result, Youthlaw is looking to employ a Youth Engagement Advisor to focus on youth engagement, they're planning to change up their social media strategy, plus they have a bundle of useful tools that they can use to involve young people in their work.
Facilitating the launch of Mindfulness for Change
Mindfulness for Change is a network of people and communities supporting each other to develop projects and relationships that benefit the wellbeing of people and planet. In 2016 I designed and facilitated their launch event alongside a core team of passionate creatives. Today, the network connects people who are interested in mindfulness and keen to do some good in the world.
