Growing strong youths…
Building better communities
Te Aranui Youth Trust empowers young people in the Western Bay of Plenty to engage with their community and make self-aware and conscientious life choices.
Through the delivery of Te Aranui Youth Trust, Blue Light and Police Youth Development programmes,
Te Aranui Youth Trust provides a pathway to ensure local youths are positive, steadfast, well-adjusted members of the community.
Growing up is a trying time and youths are very much influenced by what is going on around them.
Te Aranui Youth Trust’s aim is to build courage and resilience in these young people so that they can resist negative influences and follow a positive path. In developing self-awareness and leadership potential, youths begin to thrive.
Without our assistance, local youths would be disadvantaged.
Because we work alongside New Zealand Police and with knowledge of what is happening in our community, the work we carry out meets the foremost needs and delivers the greatest possible benefits.
Te Aranui Youth Trust receives no government funding, so we rely on the generosity of the community, in providing our vital youth programmes.
Get amongst it! With your help we can continue to educate and empower youth along positive pathways to success.
