Wellington School-Based Programmes
We run a number of different school-based programmes to support students with learning more about themselves, building their confidence and unleashing their inner awesome into the world.
Our programmes can cover a range of topics including:
We can work with you to develop workshops the specifically meet the needs of your students. Participating schools get the best results with ongoing workshops, which can be delivered to classes, student learners and young people not engaging in the classroom. We aim to focus on the issues most relevant to students' lives and communities.
All facilitators have been through an extensive training programme, and have recent police clearance to work with young people.
We're able to offer these workshops for only $50 per facilitator per hour. Thanks to the generosity of our funders, we are also able to offer a limited number of workshops at no cost to schools that need them (although koha is always welcome).

Youth Development Programme 2019
If you are a year 12 or 13 Gateway student who is interested in youth work, social work or other careers in the social services sector, then Youthline Wellington has a programme for you.
Youthline Wellington has been running a Youth Development Programme (YDP) since 2011. The purpose of YDP is to provide an opportunity for year 13 Gateway students in the Wellington region to gain valuable skills and knowledge in the social services field. The programme consists of weekly 2 hour sessions over the school terms 2 and 3, in Wellington Central, and Porirua. Students who participate and complete all course work and maintain an attendance of over 80% will gain a New Zealand Level 3 Certificate in Youth Work, and 44 NCEA Level 3 Credits.
On the weekend of April 13th and 14th 2019, We will be running the Good2Great workshop in Wellington. This will mark the beginning of the Youth Development Programme and is compulsory for all prospective YDP participants. This is a leadership and personal development workshop which will be focusing on giving participants opportunities to personally reflect, connect with new friends and empower young people with tools for social change. You can find more information about Good2Great here.
Here are some quotes from past students:
"I enjoy the interaction between the group and facilitators and how they're interested in how you are and what you've been doing and genuinely interested in your opinion or comments towards the topic at hand. I'm getting friends out of this course and people skills learning from the other people's experiences and how even through we're from different backgrounds we're still important."
“I enjoy learning about how we handle ourselves in different ways throughout different challenges in life. I have learnt about the Treaty of Waitangi in a much better way compared to learning it at school.”
