Haere Mai!


This March e-newsletter is going to be as quick as the month of February.

Our team have been kept extremely busy over the past month of February with programme development & implementation, mentoring, event planning, operating The Hangout Youth Centre, re-engaging with schools and more.

We broke a couple of records over February, which was exciting, with one day bringing in a massive fifty-seven (57) youth who spent time at The Hangout Youth Centre in the afternoon with their mates and our Youth Worker team.

Overall, we had total foot traffic of eight hundred and four (804) youth who came throughout February. This was over nineteen (19) days of operation at an average of forty-two (42) youth per day.

To put this in comparison - one year ago in February 2020 we had foot traffic of a total of five hundred and thirty-two (532) youth at an average of twenty eight (28) youth per day over nineteen (19) operational days and in February 2019 we would have had less than one hundred (100) foot traffic of youth attending.
Our CYT Youth Worker team have thoroughly enjoyed the engagement of our young people and the knowledge that they see The Hangout Youth Centre; and all of CYTs programmes as being a safe, supportive and inclusive space.

We also want to thank all businesses and the community for their support; and we look forward to seeing this continue through exciting collaborations.

We are looking to ask for your help, once again, to support the exponential increase of our service. If you would like to support us we encourage you to click the Give a Little image link above - every cent donated goes directly back to supporting our young people.

If you are a business and would like to put forward either a one off donation or a monthly contribution please feel free to contact Manager Rhys Smith via
rhys@cromwellyouthtrust.co.nz to discuss options that may suit your business.

FUNDER APPRECIATION
SPORTS OTAGO & SPORTS NEW ZEALAND

Recently Cromwell Youth Trust were one of the lucky recipients to receive funding of $9,854.78 from Sports New Zealand's Tu Manawa Active Aotearoa fund - which was managed by Sports Otago for our region.

Tū Manawa Active Aotearoa provides funding for programmes or projects delivering play, active recreation and sport experiences for tamariki and rangatahi. 


CYT are extremely thankful for the support of this funding which has enabled our organisation to invest in high quality outdoor gear; including tents, hiking packs, cooking gear and more. By having access to this gear CYT enable our programmes to be accessible to all young people and removing any barriers that may prevent any young person to take part in our outdoor programmes.

Our recent Surfing Camp in Summer (image below) utilised some of this equipment. We now have the opportunity to plan and implement some amazing upcoming active recreation; including camps and trips for the near future.
