Welcome to Youthtown Inc

Youthtown is a nationally operated, not-for-profit organisation offering a whole 'township' of developmental activity in key communities across New Zealand for 5-18 year olds.

Since 1932, we have been empowering young New Zealanders to be the best they can be and we have evolved into one of New Zealand's leading youth development organisations.

Young people's journey with Youthtown, alongside their schooling, supplements the learning and development they receive - all of which is tonnes of fun with their peers.

We are highly regarded for the programmes we offer young people and we're committed to providing a safe environment where young New Zealanders can 'dream it, do it' with Youthtown, the Youthtown Way.
