He Rangatahi He Anamata (HRHA) Māori Youth Leadership Summit is about building the next generation of leaders by mobilising rangatahi Māori in the Bay of Plenty, empowering them to lead in order to future proof our region. The meaning of He Rangatahi He Anamata translates to ‘Our Youth, Our Future' and has been named after the region's Long Term Māori Youth Strategy 2050 which highlights our unique Māori profile, the opportunities in front of us and the collective aspiration that we are driving to achieve in the region.
HRHA fosters the Bay of Plenty's Māori economy by unlocking the potential of the emerging Māori workforce which is a key focus of Toi Kai Rawa. HRHA is an annual Leadership Summit that moves across the region each year building a network of young Māori leaders and providing an important opportunity that encourages collaboration across the Bay's industry, education sector and Māori organisations to accelerate Rangatahi Maori into high value opportunities in education, training and employment
