About me:

Tena koe, I'm Amber Paterson (she/her). I have been a kaimahi and youth development for over 13 years. I'm passionate about youth development and can't imagine working in any other profession. I have been providing supervision for kaimahi since 2018. 

My style of supervision is a holistic approach because we take our whole selves into this line line of mahi. Healthy kaimahi, healthy youth practice means healthier rangatahi. I have worked in many roles from faith based, well-being and psycho-social support, project creation, facilitation, kaupapa Maori, camps, hapori based, in-school, LGBTQIA+ groups and safe spaces.I

Alternative education, Camps, Community development, Drop-in-centre, Ethics, Events, Faith-based, Leadership, Mental health, Mentoring, NEET, Rainbow, School, Whanāu services, Volunteer, Youth development, Youth health, Young parents, Peer supervision, Social issues/justice
