The REP (the Rights Education Project) is education for young people by young people, and our vision is that rangatahi throughout Aotearoa are empowered with knowledge about their legal rights & responsibilities. It’s interactive, road-tested and heaps of fun!

How does the REP work?

The REP is a series of eight, one-hour education sessions on a range of different topics. Modules currently available are: Flatting, Working, Money, Sex, Whānau, Police, Drugs & Cars. We are also working on three new modules: Te Tiriti o Waitangi, the Internet and Human Rights.

Each module can be presented as a structured class (with slides, teaching guides and classroom activities), but for groups wanting more flexibility or spontaneity, you can tailor the modules to meet your needs and interests. The REP is designed to give presenters all the tools needed to present these modules in any classroom or learning environment.

Community Law Centres partner with groups of young volunteers (either through their local law schools or other volunteer groups), to deliver the REP in schools and alternative education centres throughout Aotearoa.
