We are pleased to announce that our 2019 Event will be in support of the Martinborough Youth Trust which does outstanding work in support of local youth. The Martinborough Youth Trust has operated as a registered charitable trust since 2001 and currently is enrolling local teen’s aged 13 to 18 into a very effective, seven-day, intensive program called Discovery.
The Discovery Foundation has been providing life and study skills for ordinary NZ teenagers for the past 20 years (since the early 90’s). The course helps to develop responsibility, confidence and the self-esteem of teen’s by providing tools to help them to effectively negotiate their teenage years. Teen’s learn strategies to realise the consequences of their behaviour, goal setting, study skills and communication with parents, teachers, bosses and friends. The outcome is happier families and stronger communities.
To date, the Martinborough Youth Trust has sponsored 75 teens through to completion of the course.
Youth are the future. Empowering youth to lead more successful, productive and happier lives makes a huge difference in our community and thus our nation.
