Te Aranui Youth Trust is a gem for our community

Te Aranui Youth Trust is taking affirmative action to help our most vulnerable children. This Trust works closely with our Police to help young at-risk children one at a time. These are children, who are often from dysfunctional families, and who, if we can stop them from growing into a life of dependence and crime, will save taxpayers between $320,000 and $1,000,000 over their lifetime. That is why Te Aranui Youth Trust is such a good charity to be associated with. You only have to multiple the children we help with the potential cost to see the value. This Trust is truly making a difference, working with our wonderful Police and their Youth Officers to make a real difference with the most vulnerable. We work with the bottom 5% of society that most Not-for-Profits aren’t interested in. Yes it is hard – but it is so rewarding as well. For me this is what supporting local communities is all about.
