Kia ora I'm Kris Heslin

My first insight to youth work happened in 1999 with Chris Martin running the "Peer Support" programme with us at Hillmorton High School. After a couple of years thinking my career was in cheffing and used car sales, I studied Youth Work in 2003, 21 years on working at YCD, Looked After Children - South East London, Oranga Tamariki - Te Puna Wai o Tuhinapo, Te Whatu Ora - Community Dental Services and now Noaia Charitable Trust.

Throughout those years Rerenga Awa/Canterbury Youth Workers Collective has been a valuable tool for networking, connecting and professional development. It's a privilege to be a part of the board and give back to the youth worker whanau.
