Off to an awesome start

Helping to support Kiwi kids stay stronger together

Our Stars programme strengthens young people for that often-tricky transition into high school, through training and supporting older students to mentor and walk alongside the new year 9’s.

The sky's the limit

"What are you going to do when you grow up?" Not a lot of teens know the answer to that old chestnut! Career Navigator helps by assisting NZ's youth with valuable information, options and guidance around work and life choices, support with achieving goals, and aiming high.

Shaping the future

Project K kicks in at a time when some kids need it most. Designed for Year 10's, this programme builds confidence, teaches life skills, promotes good health and encourages a positive attitude. What's not to love.

Back on track

Teenage years can be a tough time for many. But if problem situations are caught early and given a chance - given the right support - lives can be tuned around. That's what MYND is all about.
