Help us buy a bus! In turn this provides sustainable income for UHCYT, which enables us to impact young peoples lives. Why wouldn't you?

Upper Hutt Community Youth Trust needs to buy another bus. Why? Well its not because our other buses are old, or dead, but because demand for our bus service has skyrocketed and we can't service the demand with our current two buses.

Running a bus service for UHCYT isn't our primary focus, youthwork is, but without our bus service income we couldn't provide the youthwork that we do.

All the profit from bus hires goes straight into youthwork in our community, and adding another bus is a step closer towards us becoming more sustainable as an organisation and reducing our reliance on donations and grants.

Giving to our social enterprise is the gift that keeps on giving. It doesn't just help in the year that its given, but its the gift that keeps on giving. We know that a bus returns us at least $10k of profit each and every year that we own it. Your support this year to help us buy a bus, will continue to give back to the community for the many years to come in the form of youthwork that is sustained by our bus social enterprise.

Our youthwork itself is well respected and recognised in Upper Hutt, and the majority of it is based around our Youth Centre (Collision Youth Centre) from which a number of our youth initiatives happen. This includes Barista training, leadership programmes, recording studio, internet cafe, young men and womens wellbeing programmes, as well as two social enterprises - a coffee cart and bus and van hire business venture.

Easter Camp  5 March 2015

Posted by: Upper Hutt Community Youth Trust

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.
