A new initiative provides individuals and organisations the chance to directly help Ōtautahi rangatahi be the best version of themselves by sponsoring a space at Te Tahi Youth.
Through Te Tahi Youth’s Sponsor-A-Space programme individuals or businesses are invited to sponsor one of eight counselling spaces.
The counselling rooms are designed to be comfortable spaces where rangatahi can relax and make themselves at home. To provide these spaces Te Tahi Youth relies on sponsorship and fundraising.
“All of Te Tahi Youth’s services are offered for free so we rely on sponsorship and fundraising to continue offering much-needed support to rangatahi.
"A generous commitment to Sponsor-A-Space has the power to change the lives of thousands of young people in Christchurch. Your support means that when Ōtautahi rangatahi need us, we can be there," Te Tahi Youth Fundraising Manager Nia Gardner says.
Sponsorship terms start from an annual donation of $3,000 ($250/month) which gives individuals or businesses naming rights for their sponsored space and annual updates on the difference their space has made for young people.
“Through our Sponsor-A-Space programme you can make a significant difference to young people here in Christchurch while creating a real impact on your business, brand and purpose. It’s a win-win!” Nia says.
