Empowering Youth

Transforming youth into 'leaders' who are caring, responsible, articulate and have a sense of self! We believe in the right for youth to Aroha (love), manaaki (care), and tautoko (support) to fulfill their potential.

Youth Connections

We work with young people at risk of disengaging or who have already disengaged from education, family and community to develop skills and attributes that promote wellbeing and support positive life choices.

Get Set for Work

We help youth who have disengaged from school with a transition pathway towards employment or further education. Our programme offers a real-world experience that prepares individuals for their future career path.

Life Skills for Life

Our programme has been developed on a kaupapa of caring and with a view of trying to offer alternatives to young people who find themselves in difficult situations. The atmosphere of positive change and high regard and respect for everyone attending the centre has very positive effect on the nature and success of the project.
