Graeme Dingle Foundation Southland

Supporting tamariki and rangatahi in the lower south island to build mental wellbeing and develop life skills and resilience.


Here at the Graeme Dingle Foundation Southland we aim to inspire all school-age children and young people to reach their full potential through programmes that build self-esteem, promote good values and teach valuable life, education and health skills.

In Southland we currently deliver the Kiwi Can and Career Navigator programmes.

These programmes help grow a youth population who are better educated, have enhanced employment prospects, greater self-esteem and are healthy and motivated.

Kiwi Can is our energy-packed values and life skills programme, aimed at kids aged 5 to 12. It teaches values such as integrity, honesty, resilience and respect (to name a few) and delivers fun-filled learning to ten primary schools throughout the Southland region.

Career Navigator is a ready for work programme that supports secondary school students in their decision making around future employment while also providing an effective platform for employers to share real-world knowledge and experiences.
