Foundation North provides Scholarship support for youth

Spirit of Adventure Trust News - Foundation North provides Scholarship support for youth

Foundation North provides $100,000 Scholarship support for Auckland & Northland Youth.

The Spirit of Adventure Trust is delighted to announce the funding support approved by Foundation North of $100,000.00 towards Youth Scholarships.

These scholarships will support youth from Auckland / Northland to attend the 10 Day Youth Development Programme delivered on board New Zealand’s iconic Tall Ship - Spirit of New Zealand.

Particular focus in awarding these funding scholarships will be towards Maori and Pacifica students from those secondary schools who are participating with the Trust to support the further the personal growth and development of their students

The potential impact of the 10 Day Development Voyage programme has been proven time and time again in various research studies to build confidence, resilience and self-esteem in youth. But importantly, for the teens themselves, it gets them outside their comfort zone facing challenges they never thought they could.

Effectively this partnership will create life changing experiences so our rangatahi become confident and competent contributors to their whānau and to Aotearoa – New Zealand.
