The theme of South Auckland Youth Network's 2022 symposium was "Navigating Spaces".

We would like to thank SAYN - South Auckland Youth Network for allowing us to share our Aunty Dee tool to help our youth workers navigate problems with youth, no matter the problem.

Such a privilege to share space with so many professionals doing important mahi within their respective communities.
