Riki Nofo’akifolau

TEAM LEADER – YOUTH

Riki Nofo’akifolau is a young mother of Tongan descent hailing from the villages of Ha’asini, Holopeka and Koulo, Ha’apai. She started her journey at Village Collective back in 2013, when she came on board as a Health Promoter with nothing but life experience and a Performing Arts background. By using her creativity as a tool to connect with Pacific youth, she has played a major role in designing, developing and delivering our lesson modules. Riki believes that to support young people to make informed decisions, we need to truly understand them and for them to know that we do. In the past four years, she’s enhanced her facilitation skills and gained Public Health knowledge and qualifications, but her greatest achievement is the Talanoa she’s had with young people.

Delaney Rudolf

Delaney Rudolf

SERVICE DELIVERY

Delaney Rudolf is a young Māori mum representing the iwi of Ngapuhi and Tainui. Her experience and knowledge in Youth Development led her to becoming a health promoter in 2017. Since joining Village Collective she has gained knowledge of sexual health, facilitation skills and a better understanding of Public Health. All of which, have allowed her to broaden her knowledge of the youth sector. Delaney acknowledges the cultural contexts of Young People and the impotance of kōrero / talanoa when building intentional relationships and creating safe and inclusive spaces for Young People. She is looking forward to continuing that mahi as a part of Village Collective’s Service delivery team.

‘Aisea Latu

SERVICE DELIVERY

‘Aisea Latu is a proud Tongan born and raised in Auckland and has a background in Performing Arts. He first came on board back in 2014 as a facilitator after being a part of the Talanoa Theatre production as an actor. Since then he has been able to use his background in performing to help create and develop various programmes for our young people. He’s also upskilled and gained knowledge about sexual reproductive health through hands-on training and various workshops which has helped him engage with young people in various settings across New Zealand. Having spent some time away from the organisation last year, Aisea is now a part of our new Service Delivery team. Although he has worked in the health sector around the country, he still finds that there’s no place like South Auckland when it comes to working with our young people.
