Coast Mentoring is a collaborative project between local youth organisations based in Whangaparaoa. CYC Trust + Youth in Transition recognised the need for young people on the Coast to have the support of a mentor on their journeys. We are also a part of the Upside Youth Mentoring family and excited to be delivering their programme on the Coast. By working together with the community, the Coast Mentoring team believes that we can support, encourage and equip our young people to step into a brighter future!
CYC Trust is an independent charitable Trust established in 2006 to work with young people and their families on the Hibiscus Coast. Their mission is to provide direction, leadership, and hope to support and mentor young people, their caregivers and their families.
CYC's services are relational in nature, and encompass one on one mentoring and group programmes with youth workers. All CYC's initiatives are strengths based and designed to help young people and families establish effective relationships while developing resilience. Through these initiatives, CYC is able to continue strengthening youth, empowering families and building community.
