​For young people to belong because they are valued​

Youth Encounter exists because we believe every person can encounter their God-given potential to live life wide open when they know they belong and believe in their true value.

Through a supportive community, our strong faith and activity-based programmes we create an environment where the youth of Aotearoa New Zealand can feel a sense of belonging that empowers them to live life to the fullest and focus forward with hope in their future.

“I felt lost like I no longer knew who I was but now I feel like I have a purpose and have the determination and power to do what I want in life. Youth Encounter has given me confidence and has given me back my excitement about life.”  - Participant
