Graeme Dingle Foundation BOP's Drop Your Boss event supports kids in Kiwi Can, Stars and Project K and helps transform young lives forever.

New Zealand youth face many challenges in this ever-changing world and we want to help prepare them to overcome any obstacles they might face and to make the most of their futures. In order to give our young people the best chance we can we are asking local Bay of Plenty community and business leaders to take a leap of faith... 10,000 feet into the air!

Our annual Drop Your Boss Campaign is one of our most significant fundraisers each year and the proceeds of your generosity enable us to continue our programmes and reach as many schools as possible. Plus it gives you guys the opportunity to throw your boss out of a plane - win-win!

A bit about our programmes:

Kiwi Can is taught to 5 to 12 year olds with lessons on Positive Relationships, Integrity, Resilience and Respect every week to 3,100 tamariki.

Stars is a Peer mentoring programme which reaches over 400 teens, helping them to form relationships, minimise bullying, make the transition to high school, manage themselves and connect with their new school and their community.

Project K is a 14 month transformational journey for low self-efficacy youth involving a wilderness adventure, community service, workshops and training, and long-term mentoring from volunteer role-models.

These skydives benefit the thousands of young people participating in our programmes within our community and help effect a profound positive impact on their lives and the wider community. We are so proud to be a part of making this change and encourage you to join us in improving the lives of our tamariki and rangitahi.
