RainbowYOUTH’s 2020 Strategy

Our strategy extends the Vision and Mission of RY to talk about outcomes we would like the organisation to achieve, and puts timeframes around those outcomes. These strategic plans are important to keep us focused on achieving short term goals, which also work towards our vision in the long term.

Our strategy also allows us to evaluate opportunities which are presented to RainbowYOUTH, to see if they align with what we are trying to achieve. These are the six focus areas that the board and staff have identified as being priorities for RainbowYOUTH to focus our work on for the next three years.

RainbowYOUTH provides safe, accessible, inclusive and useful Spaces for all rainbow rangatahi, their friends and whānau
