Youth Alive Trust is over 5 years through the process of planning and funding a purpose built Youth & Community Centre as part of its current facility in the heart of New Brighton!  Over $2 million as been granted to the vision of this Community Hub, and Stages 1 & 2 & 3 are already OPEN and Stage 4 has its official opening in July 2017.  We’re still looking for funding to finish off the front lounge and kitchen, and the outside building signage – contact us if you’re keen to leave a legacy for families on the east of Christchurch!

Funding Call - Christchurch Mail - August 2016

Unfortunately, as described in recent Pegasus Post and Christchurch Mail articles, we are in the sad position of funding for 2017. Earthquake related grants have helped us grow operationally over the past few years, and we’re now desperately looking for ways to keep all our programmes running, and become more financially sustainable. We’re seeking to find 50 new Supporters to raise $50,000 a year, and cover our ongoing costs.  Read more about it HERE or for further information other ways of supporting us including leaving a gift in your will, then visit:
