"A community where young people are vibrant and optimistic through being encouraged and supported to take up challenges"
Cromwell Youth Trust’s promise is to provide a safe and supportive environment where young people have the opportunities to express themselves openly, without judgement; to be treated as equals, without segregation; to have the opportunity to participate, without concern of financial pressure; to be heard, without being silenced and to be guided by trusted and dedicated youth workers.
Cromwell Youth Trust use the Youth Development Strategy Aotearoa as a framework for effective youth development.
Below are the six (6) key principles our youth workers utilise throughout all our programmes and service.
Together, these six principles can help young people to gain a sense of contributing something of value to society, feeling of connectedness to others and to society, belief that they have choices about their future and the feeling of being positive and comfortable with their own identity.
