Our Tamariki face many obstacles in this ever-changing world so we are inviting people from across the region to drop for youth.
We have partnered with Skydiving Kiwi in Ashburton to offer a tandem Skydive to fundraisers. You'll get to thrill of a lifetime. You’ll also get to help tamariki and rangatahi in the Canterbury at the same time as ticking skydiving off your bucket list. And, if skydiving is just not for you, you could also gift your skydive for a young person to have this epic experience!
Every dollar raised from this event will be spent on our school-based programmes working alongside young people in our most vulnerable communities. Our proven programmes are sequenced to create a positive vehicle for change for young people aged 5 to 18 years old. This is what we call the 'Transformational Journey' – a journey that helps our young people become more confident and resilient, find purpose and direction to achieve success.
Graeme Dingle Foundation programmes equip our young people for the future by developing self-belief, resilience, integrity and the strategies to build strong relationships - making a real difference in their lives and the Canterbury of tomorrow!
Event Update 1 April 2020
Unfortunately due to the Covid19 shutdown, we have had to postpone Drop for Youth. We have locked in Saturday 17th October when hopefully everything has settled down and the weather is warmer.
Please know that we will still be going ahead with the skydive event and we just ask for your patience as we all band together and unite to protect ourselves, families, friends and communities at this time.
Thank you for your ongoing support and we look forward to October.
