Mates & Dates

Mates & Dates is taught to years 9-13 and aims to teach young people how to have healthy relationships based on respect, negotiation and consent, identify inappropriate behaviour, get help if they, or someone they know, are in an unhealthy relationship and safely intervene in situations that could lead to harm. Mates & Dates is a strengths-based programme based on the belief that all young people are able act with respect towards their mates, dates, and family in all interactions.

SAPN is a provider of the Mates and Dates programme in the Wellington, Gisborne, Manawatu and Whanganui regions. We collaborate with WellStop to provide the programme in Taranaki and Hawkes Bay Regions and with OCASA to provide the programme in Otago.
