Youthline Central South Island - youth supporting youth
Ara Taiohi CSI - ngā Taiohi tautako i ngā taiohi
Youthline Central South Island supports taiohi across the top half of Te Wai Pounamu, from Waitaki to Tasman Districts.
We support young people’s development. We provide a 24/7 helpline, peer support for schools, online mentoring, and training for young people.
We are based in Ōtautahi / Christchurch, which houses our helpline and office. We provide support to the Tasman-Nelson, Marlborough, and Timaru Youthlines.
We are a volunteer led charity, with a small support staff. We encourage young people to be involved and lead in our communities.
We have networked our helpline service with the other independent Youthlines around the country. This increases our collective impact and provides a national service.
