Teachers, coaches & parents play vital and key roles in people’s lives. From an early age, I have always admired this role as I apply this passion through educating and coaching various individuals, families, students, groups, and sporting teams.

Serene place of paradise - by the sea singing in one accord with my guitar – my balance & saving grace.

Kia ora, Ko Janeya Wilton tookuu ingoa.
Kia ora all, my name is Janeya Wilton, and I am a youth worker (kaihapi/kai mahi)here at Kirikiriroa Family Services Trust, and am here to offer my sincerest support and services to the best of my ability, and more importantly to assist and guide rangatahi/tamariki so they are able to find and identify the light in this chaotic world, to help them be a better them, and to live this life as neatly and peacefully as possible. I can understand how controversial or threatening it may seem to allow someone into your life, especially for rangatahi, however despite the title (youth worker) I can say I speak from experience in regards of my understanding. Growing up with Cyphs or now renowned as “Oranga Tamariki” always having some form of presence in my life was always so draining for me personally, growing up in the system, was definitely challenging yet so eye-opening. But I overcame the system in my journey, and I'm here to help rangatahi and tamariki do the same, to live life better, to show them there’s more to it than the life that’s portrayed to us. I understand completely how it is for a lot of whaanau, and rangatahi, and intend on making life a lot better for you all.
