About this event

How do we empower & support our teens and tweens during this challenging time? With covid uncertainty and social media everywhere... It’s not easy being a teen/tween right now and it’s not easy being a parent or caregiver, teacher, coach or counsellor either.

Wouldn't it be awesome if you had insights and strategies to help you navigate the joys and challenges that come with the teenage and in between years?


During this two hour event you will hear from incredible speakers who are specialists in their area and ready to help you with just that! Whether you're a parent, caregiver, teacher going through something big at the moment with your teen/tween or if things are smooth sailing and you just want to be prepared, this event is for you! *Or if you're not yet in the teen/tween years but keen for insight you're welcome too.

The topics covered by speaking and Q&A Panel at this event include:

  • Mental health (anxiety & depression)
  • Navigating friendships, Confidence and Self belief
  • How to raise good men - family & sexual violence
  • Managing social media & how to talk to your kids about sex/porn.

Ross McCook

Founding Director of Heart For Youth Charitable Trust

Lead Trainer/Facilitator - NZ Youth Mentoring Network

Programme Facilitator - Whītiki Tauā Mentoring

Ross is the founding director of Heart For Youth Trust (H4Y) - established in 2012, a ‘not for profit’ NGO youth mentoring and support organisation for high needs/vulnerable youth based in Auckland. This is an extension of Ross’ previous 20 years’ experience working voluntarily with young people from all ethnicities and all walks of life.

Ross is also the lead trainer/facilitator for the New Zealand Youth Mentoring Network delivering mentor training and organisational support throughout N.Z with outstanding results and testimonials as well as a national youth conference speaker.

Ross’s latest work includes a key role in the development of the nationwide government initiated (Whakarongorau Aotearoa) ‘Mana in Mahi’ virtual mentoring support programme for apprentices – ‘Whītiki Tauā. Ross is currently the principle trainer/co-ordinator for the programme.

Ross’ journey was born out of adversity and addiction at a young age. Ross’ life took a measureable turn for the better through being introduced to a mentor at aged 16. A trade qualification resulted from that support - and at aged 23, Ross formed his own company where he successfully ran his own highly successful business for nearly 20 years and in that time – supported many young people who had faced similar adversity as Ross did growing up.

In 2014 Ross was nominated for both “New Zealander Of The Year Awards” and “Pride of New Zealand awards” and was awarded a community service medal.

Ross is married to wife Susan, with one biological child Briana, a foster son Jamie - and now 100’s of non-biological youth - many now of course adults with children of their own! Ross and Sue are both registered carers for Orama Tamariki.

His passion and enthusiasm for helping young people and inspiring others to do the same has been described as infectious - as he motivates adults in both N.Z and overseas by way of training / speaking on how to: “Accept, Connect, Equip and Encourage” youth and young adults in community with truly life changing results.

Ellie Bambury - The Big Sister Project

Ellie will speak on Navigating friendships, confidence & self belief.

As seen on the AM show, I'm enough series and HerStory Summit, Youth life coach and mentor Ellie Bambury is going to be diving head first into the world of friendships, 'fitting in' and self-worth. Ellie has a broad experience working in the 1-1 coaching space, running retreats, ongoing programs and one-off workshops for both young people and parents. Still being in her 20's herself, Ellie's insights will be fresh, dynamic and grounding. She believes there is no use in hiding behind the stories we have been conditioned to hold onto to justify our feeling of 'stuckness' in whatever challenges we face in life, and in her talk she will be sharing ways you can support your young person's journey as they find themselves and their people.
