Youthline works with young people, their families and those supporting young people. The organisations are made up of volunteer and paid staff members - and has centres based across the country.
Youthline was established in 1970 and forms a collaboration of youth development organisations across the country. They were created to ensure young people know where to get help and can access support when they need it. At the core of Youthline’s work is the development of leadership and personal skills in young people. We do this by involving young people; both those who seek assistance and those who wish to develop themselves.
Youthline have 10 centres around New Zealand. They are located in:
- Central South Island (Office located in Christchurch)
- Palmerston North
- Auckland Central
- West Auckland
Youthline works collaboratively to provide a free, nationwide Helpline service. Locally, they all provide different services, programmes and training for our communities.
They have an extremely supportive team that works at making the quality of life for New Zealand communities better. Their team is comprised of partners, volunteers and community helpers that give their time to Youthline.
