Welcome to the Live Life Programme
We use an empowering, community approach to support young people into work, training or education


Do you remember...

​​​​​​​The teacher, mentor, coach or role model who always believed in you?
The family friend who helped you find your way?
The times your parents loved and supported you no matter what?
The first employer who gave you a chance to start building a future?
Many of us take these people for granted... but the reality is, tens of thousands of young New Zealanders don't have this support.

The Live Life Programme was created to help fill this need and wrap community based support around young people who need help taking their next step.
See what we are all about:
Community Engagement
each participant is matched with an older mentor from the community
each participant gains work and life experience through volunteering in the community
Building Confidence
each participant goes through a confidence & employability skills workshops with a community of peers
