Why we do what we do?
For over seven years we have had a passion for working with young people in Upper Hutt, particularly those who would otherwise be overlooked or forgotten. Kickstart was established to enable the continuation of the programmes and initiatives begun in the community, helping to provide young people with opportunities to realise hope for a better future through our youth centre.
"To connect and journey with young people through creating healthy spaces and experiences that enable them to discover their worth, see new possibilities for their future, and contribute positively to our community".
"Realising Hope for a better future for the young people of Upper Hutt"
Kickstart is a charitable trust (officially Upper Hutt Community Youth Trust) and as such governed by a trust board. Our board is currently made up of seven members as below.
Kelvin Watson (Chair), Kevin Hagen (Secretary), Rebecca Hagen, Josh Peauafi, Alison Barnes, Gary Sims and Nicki Liddy.
Our Trust Board meet monthly to approve finances, receive reports from staff, and to make decisions around the governance of Kickstart.
