Empowering our youth to develop confidence, resilience & healthy well-being
Whakatipu Youth Trust is a not for profit organisation that works alongside young people aged 10-24 to ensure rangitahi have the skills, self-worth, well-being, resilience and support they need to reach their full potential. Our Kaupapa is to create safe environments, trusted relationships and opportunities to empower our youth to live purposeful and meaningful lives.
We provide mild to moderate mental health services such as counselling, and social work. WYT provides youth mentoring, group programmes, school holiday activities and other positive youth development opportunities throughout the Queenstown Central Lakes Region.
