YOU COULD IGNITE SOMEONE'S SPIRIT OF ADVENTURE AND JOURNEY OF SELF DISCOVERY.
Our 10 day youth development voyages transform the lives of over a thousand young kiwis every year. Participants will leave a voyage with a whole new set of skills, new friends and increased confidence to take on the challenges in life. They will come away with a level of self-empowerment that can only be found on the Spirit of New Zealand.
We believe any young kiwi who wants to take part in our voyages to be able to do so – regardless of their circumstances. But we can only do it with the incredibly kind support of people like you. Now more than ever do our rangatahi need support, guidance and aroha.
Our scholarship fund is there to remove the barriers of entry (financial, geographical, circumstantial) and to help those needing some extra support can get on board.
Some need help with the entire cost, many might simply need a helping hand with part of the cost, others need some help travelling to the ship or with gear they might need. With your generosity we can ensure they get to experience the magic that is a voyage on the Spirit of New Zealand.
You can choose to gift a full scholarship of $3,500 or donate an amount of your choice that will go into the fund to help those needing partial scholarships.
Whatever you choose, you will be making it possible for our rangatahi to grow and develop, empowering them to become the best they can.
You will be doing something amazing, donating to the scholarship programme. You will be enabling young people to extend themselves and their vision of the world, the benefit of which affects the wider community. Many will take part in activities they have never experienced and may not if it wasn’t for the opportunity, you are providing them.
Independent research from the University of Otago shows that all participants come away with increased self-resilience, self-confidence and self-efficacy. You can be part of a solution, providing hope and a positive future to young kiwis from across Aotearoa.
