I’m an avid sportsman with a passion for travel, having travelled extensively to over 70 countries around the world.

Youthtown Taupo John
John
Programme Lead

Kia ora, I am John and work as a Programme Lead in the Youth, Sports & Outdoors spaces for Youthtown Taupo. I joined Youthtown and wanted to learn about Youth Development and the needs of parents and most importantly what young people wanted to do with their time. I found it rewarding to teach fun simple sports games and build on skills to help young tamariki & rangatahi realise their potential. Help them to take away lessons that would build them into smart and capable young people. My passion is from a sports background and wanting to mentor and develop more people.

KiaOra my name is Harmony and I am the coordinator of our Youth programmes. If I could have any superpower, I would have super strength because who wouldn't want to be the strongest person in the world? I think outside the box and like to encourage everyone who attends our programmes to do the same as well. A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor, so challenge yourself to become the best version of yourself!
