Youthline Wellington is an incorporated society established in 1971. Since then we have consistently delivered high quality youth development and support services to young people across the lower North Island and the top of the South Island.
The organisation is based in central Wellington although we work in partnership with schools and other agencies across the region. We also work in partnership with the five other independent Youthline organisations to deliver a 24 hour phone, text and email counselling service to young people across New Zealand.
I’m Vicki Beachen, Youthline Wellington’s Manager.
I’ve been in my role at Youthline for 14 ½ years and throughout this time have had the privilege of working with hundreds of amazing Youthline volunteers.
I love the work we do here at Youthline Wellington, supporting and developing young people and am very passionate about working for an organisation who has an extremely positive heritage and legacy, with a brand that is trusted, familiar and recognized.
I really enjoy staying connected with my funders, sponsors and stakeholders and also connecting with other youth and community organisations. I also love being able to offer upskilling opportunities to our wonderful volunteers, who give so generously of their time.
In my spare time, I enjoy walking, gardening, pilates, cafes, driving muscle cars and my family is super important to me. I have two sons, aged 22 and 26 years.
Education and Youth Development Coordinator
Ko Libby toku ingoa. I am the Education and Youth Development coordinator at Youthline Wellington. In my role, I am lucky to be able to visit schools and community organisations around the Wellington region - promoting awareness around the services we offer, and facilitating education workshops. I also get to hang out with the amazing youth that participate in our Youth Development Program each year!
In my spare time, I enjoy many lol's and imagining the day I'll be responsible enough to own a dog. I find peace in the wilderness and love surfing, tramping, and just 'being' with nature! I also spend far too many hours planning new adventures and developing random skill sets.
