Zeal Hamilton Enters New Season with New Team

Zeal is excited to announce the arrival of our new Regional Manager for Zeal Hamilton, Tony O’Rourke.

Tony is passionate about young people and providing spaces for them to thrive and see for themselves the mana and potential that they carry.
Tony has over 10 years’ experience in the youth sector, having studied youth development. His experience ranges from working one on one with young people in dedicated learning environments, to speaking to auditoriums full of thousands of young people about positive change. Prior to joining Zeal, Tony was an “Attitude Presenter”, travelling both nationally and internationally doing health talks for young people, and more recently was the Programme Director of Excel School of Performing Arts in Auckland.
I’m excited to lead a Zeal Hamilton team committed to making Zeal a safe, inclusive place of belonging, where young people can feel free to dream and hope for a better tomorrow.” – Tony O’Rourke, Regional Manager, Zeal Hamilton.

  • Re-opening our youth space on Ward Lane for drop-ins in March
  • Building a vibrant new youth work and programmes team
