In the next of our Pasifika webinar series, we welcome Soalaupule Asetoa (Sam) Pilisi, who works to mentor and support Pacific youth aspirations into tertiary education.
He explores experiences and perceptions of New Zealand born Pacific youth, of their various responsibilities to serve family, church and community. These responsibilities are complex in nature and require Pacific youth to devote time, energy, money and other resources to ensure key relationships are upheld with respect and love.
This webinar will help all those who work with Pacific youth to gain a better understanding of the community responsibilities these youth have and the challenges and rewards they bring, in order to provide enhanced holistic support to the young people they work with.
