YHP Community Partners: Youthline
Young people face countless challenges every day. Our charity Young Hearts Project champions supporting kiwi youth through the obstacles of life.
One of our community partners, Youthline was created over 50 years ago and was established to ensure young people know where to get help and can access support when they need it. We have been proudly supporting Youthline since 2014. There are over 200 volunteers at Youthline, the majority on the Helplines, with a few providing additional services such as youth work, face to face counselling and mentoring.
How do we support Youthline?
- We help fund regional youth development programmes and information services including referral services, early intervention, counselling and health promotion
- Volunteering – there are often opportunities that come up for us to provide a hand. Most recently we helped pack boxes of pens for their biggest fundraising initiative.
Our Deuce team were fortunate enough to meet some of the amazing Youthline volunteers at our Deuce Newmarket store. We loved getting to chat with the volunteers, and learn what it's like to volunteer at Youthline.
