Youth Development Trust Hawkes Bay - Graeme Dingle Foundation

The Graeme Dingle Foundation is an established charity and a leader in positive child and youth development. Their programmes are delivered to nearly 21,000 young people in over 40 communities throughout New Zealand. 

The Foundation runs proven school-based programmes which are sequenced to create a positive vehicle for change for young people aged between 5 to 18 years old. They focus on the needs of children and youth in their communities – this is called theTransformational Journey – a journey that creates positive change.

Kiwi Can, Stars, Career Navigator and specialist programme Project K are community focused, positive experiential learning and mentoring programmes which allow New Zealand’s young people to develop life skills and confidence – empowered to find their purpose and direction in life.

All funds raised in our 2017 event will directly support young kiwis within Hawkes Bay who are in Graeme Dingle Foundation programmes.

For every $1 invested in Graeme Dingle Foundation equals a $7.15 return to New Zealand. *

We are delighted to be supporting this well respected charity that has a proven history of making a difference to our region’s young people.

*A 2012 report prepared by Infometrics Research called ‘Growing Great Futures - Whakatipu Tamariki Ora’, showed an economic contribution to New Zealand of $7.15 for every dollar invested in Graeme Dingle Foundation programmes.
