Help us be sustainable and provide food for our youth centre hangouts
Upper Hutt Community Youth Trust runs Kickstart Youth Centre on Railway Ave, Upper Hutt.
From our venue we run a number of youth wellbeing initiatives, leadership development, barista training, physical activity opportunities and more.
One of our biggest needs is to be able to provide food for rangatahi when they come to our programmes and events that we run.
Food is often a barrier for young people. If you're hungry you're less likely to focus on learning, and getting the most out of the activities you're participating in.
As a Charitable Trust we have to obtain all our funding for the things we do. The biggest struggle we have is in obtaining funding for food for our youth centre.
This is where you can help us! Just $25 can help provide food for a youth centre hangout.
More about us
Upper Hutt Community Youth Trust exists to make a positive difference in the lives of disadvantaged young people in the local community of Upper Hutt.
We have recently rebranded to Kickstart and have a number of things we do including Kickstart Youth which includes leadership development, mentoring, drop in centre, barista training, recording studio and more.
Funds raised help us to continue to do the amazing mahi we do in Upper Hutt for our Upper Hutt Rangatahi.
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.
