Your local Youthtown
Welcome to your local Youthtown!
We are excited to be reopening our programmes! Our staff have missed working with all of our young people and we are looking forward to the ‘new normal’ and seeing our participants again.
We are working with schools directly to ensure we co-operate with them on creating safe environments for our tamariki, rangatahi and staff. We have developed detailed policies and procedures based on the best available advice. Public health measures have been put in place to minimise the risk from Covid-19. We know physical distancing will be challenging, making good hygiene practices and regular cleaning even more important. We have comprehensive registration measures in place to ensure we can contact trace if required, and all of our staff have been through specific Covid-19 health and safety training.
We hope you enjoyed Youthtown Connect during the lockdown. We certainly enjoyed connecting with our young people in this way and plan to keep developing our online platform. Check us out on Instagram, Facebook and WeChat.
Levels 3 and 4 have been a unique and challenging time for us all. We’re looking forward to a smooth transition back into programmes and seeing you all again. Stay safe!
Please call us on 0800 004 566 if we can be of help!
Since 1932, Youthtown has been empowering young people in New Zealand, aged 5-18, to be the best they can be.
Our awesome teams do this through outcome designed programmes that support young people to regularly achieve, which inspires confidence.
