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.
