Welcome

***IMPORTANT NOTICE*** Please read!!!

We would like to notify you, that due to changes in our programmes for 2018 and an impending move to Frankton, near the new high school, we will no longer be operating a ‘Drop In’ programme at our Queenstown youth centre site ‘The Booth’.

All other programmes and events will continue to run as per information already provided, so please continue to sign up for these amazing opportunities!.

We have a brand new weekly programme starting up for Year 7s and 8s only!! This is going to be awesome fun and a great way to meet new people. Please see attached the flyer for sign up information.

Our ‘Drop In’ programme at our new premise in Frankton (when we move there), will be for year level nine and upwards. We hope the Year 7s and 8s will still continue to engage with our youth workers in each of their schools weekly (St Josephs, Arrowtown, Queenstown Schools, Shotover and Remarkables Schools) and of course, come along to our new exclusive ‘Year 7 & 8 only’ programme that will run across each school term every Thursday evening from 6 – 8pm, starting on February 15th 2018

We are now located at 5/15 Oaks Drive, Frankton
In the same building as SITE Trampoline and Indoor Snow Park


Welcome to our website. This is an interactive space for you to keep up to date and learn about us.

Wakatipu Youth Trust (WYT) was established in April 2011 following the merger of Queenstown Life Trust and Wakatipu District Youth Trust, both of which had been established in the community for over ten years.

Through working closely with the community, Wakatipu Youth Trust ensures all youth in the Wakatipu Basin are provided with opportunities that allow them to grow and develop essential life skills, resilience and overall healthy well-being.

Wakatipu Youth Trust is a not for profit organisation that works alongside young people aged 10-24 to achieve positive outcomes through both support and advocacy. We provide, opportunities, resources, skilled people and safe environments which help to foster confidence, strength and challenges youth to reach their potential.

In resourcing youth in this way we believe it can empower them to discover their own identity and develop strengths, attitudes and strong healthy relationships which enable them to contribute positively to their communities.

We work across all our youth community here in the Wakatipu Basin and actively provide services in all their schools and communities from Glenorchy to Arrowtown .

At Wakatipu Youth Trust and our community youth centre ‘The Youth Booth’ we encourage a safe, inclusive, accepting and positive environment that is smoke, drug and alcohol free.
