SPONSOR A YOUTH WORKER
We meet young people where they are at. We listen, support, strengthen and guide.
We rely on you: our local and national community. We cannot do what we do without you. When you sponsor a youth worker, you're impacting an average of 400 young people in the Whangaparaoa community a month.
When you sponsor a youth worker, we'll send you updates of their work and impact. You'll be part of the CYC community!
Thank you for your generosity.
