Te Hūmeka provides a platform for Māori businesses to network on a local, national and international scale. Our vision is empowering Māori business in the Waikato to lead the world and our mission is to support all Māori to realise their economic aspirations, and achieve financial prosperity. 
Te Hūmeka places significant importance on tikanga Māori. Tikanga Māori, or Māori values, are a way of life by which Māori live, and instruments used to interpret the world. The values are centred around land, water and air, and are essential ingredients of life that are to be respected and sustained. These values embody the work we do and influence every action Te Hūmeka takes.


Te Hūmeka organises informative, education-based events, create resources that support business development, and create pathways to enable all Māori businesses, regardless of sector, to thrive.


Join our Whānau!

We are always looking to connect with new members to ensure our network can tautoko and assist Māori business owners in our rohe.

The Young Workers Resource Centre exists to empower young people to have positive employment experiences, to be protected in their workplaces from exploitation, and to understand how to address workplace conflicts and cultivate positive employment relationships.

We promote, develop and provide quality education, information and resources that enhance well-being, empowerment, positive change, and understanding for young workers in regard to their workplace and employment issues.


We facilitate employment workshops at secondary schools, tertiary providers, and community organisations focusing on educating young people about the employment rights. We also provide free employment advocacy to young workers for any work-related issues, and act as a spokes-group for employment matters affecting young people.


Why don't you check out the different products and services we offer, subscribe to our blogs, put yourself forward for a governance position or volunteer on one of our projects?

Each YWCA across Aotearoa New Zealand is committed to four key strategic areas for which we are accountable to young women, volunteers, local member associations, their communities and our key stakeholders.

These strategic priorities focus our collective efforts to achieve a common purpose of developing the leadership and collective power of women, young women and girls. They are underpinned by an overarching commitment to the World YWCA movement.

  •  Young Women’s Leadership
    Developing the skills and capacity of young women to shape their own lives and influence the lives of others, through small changes close to home and in the wider community.
  •  Young Women’s Safe Spaces
    Creating, supporting and promoting young women to develop the confidence to secure and sustain their emotional, spiritual, physical, mental, cultural wellbeing in physical and virtual spaces.
  •  Young Women’s Sexuality and Health
    Creating, supporting and promoting young women to develop the confidence to demonstrate positive choices in relation to sexuality and health.
  •  Young Women’s Economic Independence
    Creating, supporting and promoting the skills and confidence for young women to establish, retain and build (make, keep and grow) economic self-reliance. Economic empowerment through the YWCA is about informing and supporting women through financial, economical and legal literacy.
