The Urutapu Leadership Programme is part of the youth innovation led by Mad Ave Community Trust. We believe in the innate strengths and gifts of all peoples and communities. Our role is to enhance and develop these assets for the enrichment of all, ensuring positive outcomes for our whānau, especially our young people.

Mad Ave is committed to working collaboratively with our community and people. Our goal is to build a sustainable future by providing learning pathways that strengthen and capitalise on the wisdom of our past and knowledge of the future.

We do this by:

Inspiring community cohesion through hui facilitation,wānanga(educational workshops), artistic and cultural programming. 

Embedding tikanga and Mātauranga Māori as a tool for wellness and transformation.

Supporting community groups by providing communication strategies and technologies to build stakeholder engagement.
