About Us

Grey District Youth Trust:  Supporting Youth to be Connected, Heard, and Engaged

Our vision  

To work creatively with young people in ways that cultivate connection, growth, positive change, and participation within the Grey District.  


Our values  

Grey District Youth Trust values culturally inclusive practices through Whakapapa (interconnectedness through time and space); Mauri (inherent potential and life spark); Mana (inherent authority  and integrity); Manaakitanga (generosity and care for collective wellbeing); Whanaungatanga (relationship building and connection); and Mātauranga (knowledges). This approach  underpins our constitutional and collective aims.
