Youth Leadership

Youth Leadership and Water Competency Training

Drowning Prevention Auckland offers three core programmes for youth, who typically participate in water-related activities but do not always possess the skills and knowledge to keep themselves safer while doing so.

  • Wai Turama – Introduction to Water Competence
  • Wai Wise – Developing Water Competence
  • Wai Wise – Comprehensive Water Competence

These programmes are designed to develop safer attitudes and behaviours when in, on and around water, achieved through the development of water competency skills, water safety knowledge and critical thinking around decision- making around the aquatic environment. The three core programmes outlined below can also be tailored to suit the requirements of your group.
