Corina Vogler and the Quirky Kid Clinic were recently invited to attended the Involve Conference in Auckland, New Zealand. The Involve conference organised by the NZAAHD aimed to enhance the skills of people who work with young people and to promote young people’s positive health and development.

Whilst at the conference we had the privilege to observe many Maoir customs, such as the Pōwhiri (call of welcome from tribes) and were able to attend a number of sessions. The sessions informed us of the amazing and creative work that is being carried out in New Zealand, to support young people.
Additionally, Quirky Kid were provided with an opportunity to display our Therapeutic Resources. They were incredibly well received by many organizations who purchased our stocks out. This was another major step towards promoting and expanding our resources and we were delighted to see that the resources were received with great enthusiasm.
Young people in New Zealand are very dedicated to the future and well-being of their generation. We found it extremely inspiring to be a part of this conference, and are grateful for the hospitality that was shown to us.
