NZSA Youth Mentor Programme

With the support of Creative New Zealand, we offer a Youth Mentor programme aimed at senior secondary school students.

The aims are to nurture, encourage, inspire and develop emerging writers with the support of established authors through the mentoring process.

There are four 9 hour mentorships available nationwide. Students will be matched with an experienced YA writer.

APPLICATIONS FOR THIS PROGRAMME ARE OPEN FROM FEB TO APRIL

HERE’S WHAT ONE OF OUR YOUTH MENTEES HAD TO SAY ABOUT THEIR MENTORSHIP

‘The relationship and communication with my mentor was amazing. All the goals I set were personally settled upon which allowed for great project development and personal achievement’.

THIS PROGRAMME IS MADE POSSIBLE THANKS TO SUPPORT FROM CREATIVE NEW ZEALAND
