Help support Kickstart, Upper Hutt's number one youth centre and hangout space for rangatahi.
Upper Hutt Community Youth Trust Trading as Kickstart is a youth development agency run out of our youth centre venue in Ward Street, Upper Hutt.
From our venue we run a number of youth wellbeing initiatives such as leadership development, barista training and physical activity opportunities. We also deliver various programmes in our local colleges (Upper Hutt and Heretaunga), as well as Fergusson and Maidstone intermediate schools.
On an annual basis Kickstart is connecting and journeying with over 1000 rangatahi, seeking to help them realise hope for a better future.
We are innovative and creative in how we approach our work, to ensure that the needs of young people are at the forefront of what we do.
Kickstart is a charitable trust, and as such we raise all the funds needed for us to exist. Every little bit helps.
Upper Hutt Community Youth Trust (trading as Kickstart) exists to make a positive difference in the lives of disadvantaged young people in the local community of Upper Hutt.
Easter Camp 5 March 2015
We are planning on taking a group of 20plus young people to an Easter Camp in Manfield this year.
The young people who we are taking don't have the money to go - it costs $160 per person, plus we need to get tents and sleeping bags etc to take them.
Funds raised on givealittle will help us get these young people there.
