VC is one of three organisations invited by the Ministry of Education to assist in the review of the Relationships & Sexuality Guidelines (SRG) 2020. Our input focused on Pasifika and the critical importance of identity and cultural approach.
We are the only Pacific provider in Aoteroa that support MVPFAFF / LGBTQ+ youth in secondary schools, and currently support Diversity groups in 7 secondary schools in Auckland.
Our service also includes assisting schools design their own RSG programmes for Pasifika young people and professional development for educators working with MVPFAFF / LGBTQ+ youth.

National Schools Pride Week 2020
Celebrating Pride in every school | Whakanuia te uenuku ki ia kura
We’re excited to launch InsideOUT’s first annual National Schools Pride Week campaign, with a range of activities that schools, rainbow diversity groups, students and staff can get involved with in their school!
We hope that by creating opportunities to celebrate and affirm rainbow identities through this campaign we can help reduce the experiences of bullying and distress many of our rainbow rangatahi face, and give these young people an increased sense of belonging in their school communities.
