Young People are getting alot of bad press these days. YouthZone Northland Trust will do what ever it takes to get alongside and help out where ever we can.
Why we do camps?
Young People need to be challenged in all aspects of their life. So with outdoors activities, challengers, team work, and working with leaders we hope to have input into there physical, mental, social and spiritual areas of there life looking at the whole person. On a week camp we really get to know a young person and what he or she struggles with.
Why do we run weekly youth programmes?
The only way you can make a difference is to be able to work with a young person weekly. Thats why Rock Solid club exists to help make solid foundations in a young person life. To help them through the turbulent teenage years.
How do we survive financially?
We totally survive off donations from friends, family and businesses. We know that we can't possibly survive just on donations so we apply for the odd grant and also run our own Charity Auction which is Northland wide and very genoursly supported by Northland and NZ businesses. This helps us raise $9,000 towards our youth work around Northland. Our full-time volunteers have to raise their own support from friends and family. If you are interested in helping us out financially either for Staff support or our $20 month backbone club, ring us on (09) 4386059.
