Ko Amanda Carolyn Smith tōku Ingoa

I have been a positive youth development practionor in one form or another for the past 15 years.
I previously worked for Agape Trust. I currently work for Te Ora Hou Ōtautahi, where I have been working for the past 10 years. I have worked across most teams at Te Ora Hou.

I started as a youth worker in the Rangatahi Ora team, moved to the Hapori team to be a Whanau Ora Navigator and now I am back in the Rangatahi Ora team as 1 of 3 team leaders, where I oversee the Ākonga projects and programs.
Along with working at Te Ora Hou, I also do some mahi for Scope as a an assessor and am a kaiawhina for te Rōpu Maori as part of the puāwai project run through leadership lab.

I am very passionate about positive youth development and Bi cultural practise. It is an absolute priverlage to be able to serve my coummunity and empower the young leaders of tomorrow.
