Empowering young New Zealanders to be the best they can be (since 1932).


What is Youthtown?

We are a nationally operated, not for profit organisation delivering programmes, that develop skills and knowledge, to as many 5-18 year olds as we can.

When and where? Before school, during school, after school and in the holidays. We operate from schools, community centres/club rooms as well as our own sites - so we are as accessible to the community as possible.

Our Programmes

We empower young New Zealanders, aged 5-18, to be the best they can be! Their journey with Youthtown alongside their schooling, supplements the learning and development they receive there, in a physical, creative and social way. Youthtown’s six programmes are specifically designed to engage and develop individual school age groups and are consistently delivered across New Zealand in The Youthtown Way, which is our youth development philosophy.
