Kahu Youth Trust is an integral part of the Upper Clutha, and we’re here to help you. We’ve been helping young people like you in the community for over 15 years: involving you in productive learning and fun activities and programmes so you can connect to the wider community and continue to build life skills, increase self-esteem and grow in your confidence.

Our HQ in Wānaka is “the Crib”

Our base, and the place where many of our programmes and activities are delivered, is called “the Crib”. It’s close to the centre of Wānaka.

The drop-in hours at the Crib (during term time only) are usually:

  • Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday – 3:00pm – 6:00pm
  • Friday – 3:00pm – 8:00pm
  • Saturday – closed
  • Sunday – closed

Our last day at the Crib is Thursday 24th of December and we will re-open next year on Wednesday 5th January.

We’re always keen to see young people from the area who are looking for something to do. We’ve got plenty of ideas …

For parents, guardians and community partners, members of our team are usually in the building from 10am weekdays, but because of preparation for activities and work elsewhere in the community, it pays to call us first.

A full range of programmes, activities, events.

If you want to find out more about the Youth Workers you’ll find at the Crib, check our our Meet the Team section on our About page.
