Our Young People and Our Nation
How your donations are used.
The Young New Zealanders Foundation, since its inception, has conducted its own philanthropic projects and fundraising without Government finance. Our supporters can therefore take pride in the range of services to the community which their donations have paid for.
The following list gives examples of the main uses of funding. They each contribute in their own way to the safety, wellbeing and educational development of our young people.
- Research and Development
- identifying problems and needs of young people;
- developing and testing schemes and resources to meet their real needs.
- Publishing and distribution of resources to help parents, schools and community groups in their work with young people.
- Community Awareness
- spreading awareness of needs [sometimes desperate] of young people;
- demonstrating how our programmes meet real needs;
- supplying resources throughout New Zealand.
- young people in career transition;
- teachers implementing life-skills programmes.
- narrative therapy for all young people: especially troubled youth;
- professional field support.
- Professional Development
- counsellors and special needs educators;
- adult educators;
- liaison with educational institutions training young people.
- Emergency Grants
- responding to some of the urgent needs of young people.
- Web sites
- monitored sites providing young people with safe access to the Internet;
- bringing quality information to parents and caregivers.
A very sincere THANK YOU to all who have supported this work for our young New Zealanders.
