Opportunities at Parenting Place

A little bit about Parenting Place 

Parenting Place is committed to engaging with the story of Aotearoa New Zealand and our unique place in the world – a story which not only inspires our mission of equipping whānau to thrive but deeply informs our work. Our heart is for flourishing relationships, and our hope for this land is also strongly connected to Te Rongopai. We hope that you find this ambitious dream to be as energising as we do.

We do this through a range of programmes, courses, and resources – and in collaboration with a variety of like-hearted organisations and communities all over Aotearoa. Our head office is in Auckland, and we have an office in Christchurch, not to mention the hundreds of amazing volunteers who walk alongside communities up and down the country.

We’re a passionate, fun-loving team who truly believe that healthy, loving families can transform society.

Engaging Te Ao Māori 

Parenting Place feels compelled to continue listening and adopting practices that support, empower, and enhance the experience of the Māori communities we are engaged with. As a staff team, we have also committed to integrating the following guiding principles/pou into our work

  • Tangata Whenua – Recognising the mana of Tangata Whenua and partnering with them
  • Waha Kōrero – Advocacy
  • Whakaaro Māori – Integrating Te Ao Māori into our mission, programmes, culture and policies
  • Whakapapa – Knowing and curating the relational, historical and circumstantial genealogy of our organisation

We are journeying together in search of a new way of togetherness as we seek to give shape to an alternative vision for life that has Te Rongopai at its heart, and offers hope for every person and every relationship.
