Been There: Young people's stories of struggle and hope - an update

This book is a collection of stories from 25 New Zealand young people, who have written about a crisis or struggle and what has given them the hope to endure and to pull through.

'Been There' is available for purchase online - $20 per copy (including GST and postage within New Zealand).

Research Reflection: Leading for Systems Change

By Judy Bruce

Have you watched The Social Dilemma? This is a documentary where tech experts sound the alarm on the dangerous human impact of social networking.

Keep reading Judy' reflection on leading for systems change.
