What Partnerships mean to us

At Stand Tall we take a systems approach to understand the complex, interconnected challenges that affect the wellbeing of our Youth. That's massive, urgent, and important and it requires to be viewed within a greater whole. We take a lead in adding entrepreneurial and digital capability building and remove barriers to access to participation in innovation. Our initiative contributes to expanding time and thoughts horizons and prepares the soil for allied activities to take root. We value our partnerships with youth, programme providers, youth organisations, schools, iwi, sector organisations and innovative businesses to establish a shared understanding and effect change together.

Our kaupapa is firmly anchored in human development first and community development next. We consider the economic benefits from enterprise, innovation and growth as a by-product that can be scaled by the increase of confident, connected, supported youth contributing to meaningful solutions in their communities.

Underpinning our approach is the unique, holistic Māori view of health and wellbeing known as Te Whare Tapa Whā.

We are seeking to explore how an entrepreneurial mindset might impact rangatahi and their hauora in a positive way, and develop a shared understanding of what it means to be entrepreneurial in all aspects of life, with the guidance of the EntreComp Framework.
