Youthtown was established in 1932 and celebrates its 90th birthday in 2022! We have been associated with Youth Employability Aotearoa since December 2020, and have taken on Auckland, established Christchurch as well as started up Northland for Licence to Work. We have a long history of youth development work, we are involved in several aspects such as Drivers’ licence training, life skills, sports activation and in cultural development. We have existing strong partnerships with Youthline, Blue Light, Play it Strange and AIMS Games. Youthtown programmes and spaces across the country for 5 –18 year-olds that aim to inspire and promote the learning of life skills, working collaboratively, understanding and building resilience, and unlocking potential. We run events, project groups, workshops, youth hubs, camps, and tramps too! Every programme we run works towards the aim of seeing empowered young people engaged in their communities. We regularly partner with national and local community organisations who are as driven as we are about improving outcomes for children and young people. Our organisational values are statements that become everyday actions in schools, on sports fields, gyms, classrooms, halls, hangout spaces, and offices across Youthtown and in all our partner spaces. These are the pillars that enrich our Youthtown culture. Seeing how our values play out in real life makes us stronger as a team, dedicated to ensuring great outcomes for young people. Our values are: Empowering others drives us Connectedness binds us Diversity strengthens us Commitment to our purpose leads us Young People inspire us Mā te huruhuru ka rere te manu Adorn the bird with feathers so that it may fly
