Haere Mai!

Welcome to March everyone!

We had a very productive February with the start of our 'Lets Get Active' Youth Development Programme and applications for young people who may wish to be involved with our revamped Youth Council programme.

But a BIG and fresh development was the amazing transformation of our outdoor space for The Hangout Youth Centre. What a lot of people my not realise is that over the past 12+ months CYT have been seeking ways to implement artificial turf but there was a large financial commitment of around $20,000 to raise and this was unfortunately at no success as we had to focus our attention on other valuable programmes and overheads. But two amazing local businesses heard the call and jumped on board - at no hesitation - to make this happen.

Fulton Hogan kindly donated the artificial grass, knowledge, and consumables. Barrett Homes donated their time, skillset and manpower to prep the space and install. We would like to thank Adam (Fulton Hogan) and Emily, Dee and Jason (and team from Barrett Homes) for making this dream a reality and already having positive impact.


Cromwell Youth Trust are excited to host an important community event for whanua - and it is FREE!
Sexwise is run by THETA (The Theatre in Health Education Trust) who specialise in delivering applied theatre-based programmes on health related issues to rangatahi/youth in mainstream schools and alternative education.

This evening presentation will be for parents/guardians where you will learn how to have transformational conversations with your rangatahi exploring gender, sexuality and relationships.

Learn more about THETA by clicking here and Sexwise by Clicking Here 

CYT highly recommend any parent/guardian with a child (no matter their age) attend this 2 hour presentation.

Check out below other things that are coming up for our young people.
