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

The original X-it youth centre, located on Stanley Street is still being used as the local centre for youth who were consulted regarding a new name and logo and was subsequently re-branded as The (Youth) Booth. Thanks to generous donations from the local community, the youth centre had a massive makeover and has been filled with great games and resources for youth.
