Rangatahi Organised Against Racism


Rangatahi Organised Against Racism (ROAR) Fellows will receive extensive training and support that draws on the over 25-year history of Courageous Conversation™ and will engage in the following:


  • ROAR Fellows will host and facilitate regularly scheduled conversations about race on their campus.
  • Fellows will collaborate with their counterparts from other universities, technical institutes or te whare wānanga, including institutions across the globe, via an online platform throughout the year.
  • Fellows will develop forums and virtual platform activities and events to foster intra-racial and interracial relationships on campus and among youth across the globe.
  • Fellows will work with the Aotearoa Foundation to mitigate racial trauma and facilitate healing when incidents of racial strife occur in their communities.

Our goal with this programme is to develop a diverse group of emerging young leaders so they can contribute to interracial and intra-racial healing locally and across the globe.



Tertiary level students who have demonstrated an interest in the scholarly study of race and race relations and are interested in facilitating productive conversations about race using the Courageous Conversation™ framework.
