Each year, individual kiwi’s give an incredible amount in personal donations to charities and community organisations. The opportunities to financially support great causes seems endless. For most, it is about choosing a work or cause that resignates with our own story, or touches the lives of people we connect with.

We believe that the work we do with young people touches hearts because we all experience the turbulence of navigating the teen years, finding our purpose, our sense of belonging and unlocking the keys to wellbeing. Many have been fortunate to have great role models, families and supports to guide and mentor us through that stage of development, but for those less fortunate, who (through no fault of their own) find themselves in environments and situations that leave them at a disadvantage, sometimes all that is needed is someone else to notice and offer them the same opportunities.

By supporting Springboard, its programmes you are ultimately helping to provide, well deserving young people with the break they need to succeed. We believe that the personal stories we share highlight the significance one caring adult can have in changing the course of a young persons life.
