Travellers Supplementary Resources

You can enhance your delivery of the Travellers programme to better fit your students' needs by customising your resources. Below are some substitutions and supplements you can use along with the Travellers resources that are already in your kit.

A huge thank you to Orongomai Marae for their time, energy and enthusiasm in collaborating their ideas for these supplementary resources. Facilitators are invited to use the activities as they are, or to adapt them to their particular young people's needs.
