  1. 6. NEW UpstreamNZ Partnership

Youth Alive Trust has a new fundraising scheme, where YAT receives donations when people use approved businesses for their everyday purchases!  This VIDEO explains how it works.

  • E.g.: If you switch your electricity to YES Power (Canterbury based, and can beat most other rates) then YAT receives an average of $100 per year, at no extra cost to you! (ask them for a quote HERE!),
  • E.g.: If you need you heat pump cleaned, and you use an Upstream approved business, then YAT receives a percentage of that cost, e.g.: 15%

Other services and products include travel, Real Estate, Home Loans, Coffee, Solar Energy, Bouncy Castles, Electrician, Painter & Plasterer, Photographers, Builders, Bins, Carpet, Insurance and more!!!

Next time you need a service or product, book your business through: and ask them to donate their gift to Youth Alive Trust.

Wishing you and your whanau a wonderful long weekend!

The YAT Team
