Rangatahi was transferred to our services at the age of 16 years with basically nothing on his back.
Rangatahi/Youth Coach could see that this rangatahi needed not only financial support but support with his physical and mental wellbeing and substance abuse.
Our services provided him with support to obtain his license and also completed a CV which led to full time employment of which he is attending daily and still loves his job.
Engagement with our services promoted him to live a healthy lifestyle, helped him to manage the pressures of substance use and abuse particularly when he is around his peers. The rangatahi has exited our youth services and continues to work with his networks in the community to help him stay on track and achieve his goals.
