  Auckland Youth Family Support Child Welfare

Great Potentials Foundation is a charitable trust for the promotion of education and parental support.

We are in communities that need help to unleash the potential of their children and young people at key transition points in their lives.

We do this through life changing programmes we develop, establish and continue to manage.

HIPPY (Home Interaction Programme for Parents and Youngsters) is a home-based early education programme empowering low-income parents to prepare their 3-5 year old for success at school, by fostering parents'skills and confidence as educators.

MATES (Mentoring and Tutoring Education Scheme) addresses the underachievement in education of disadvantaged youth in New Zealand by working alongside schools and the local community to connect Tertiary student Mentor/Tutors with Year 13 and Year 8 students (Mentees).

FAMILY SERVICE CENTRES in Papakura and Takanini are true hubs; providing integrated health, education and social services to those most in need.

Great Potentials helps over 5,000 children, young people and families across New Zealand each year. With your support it can help many more.
