Haere Mai

We are now located at 4A/15 Red Oaks Drive, Frankton

In the same building as SITE Trampoline. Above Chipmnks.

We are no longer operating a ‘Drop In’ programme at our Queenstown youth centre site ‘The Booth’. Our ‘Drop In’ programme at our new premise in Frankton is 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 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

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.
