NZACS is proud to announce that the Foundation for Youth Development will be the charity of choice for the 2015 NZACS Charity Golf Day to be held on 12th March 2015 at the Maungakiekie Golf Course.
The Foundation for Youth Development (FYD) is a Child and Youth Development Charity that is building a positive, vibrant and successful New Zealand by Growing Great Kiwi Kids. FYD’s proven and acclaimed programmes, Kiwi Can, Stars, Project K, Career Navigator and MYND are currently delivered to over 17,000 young Kiwis aged 5-18 in 20 communities across New Zealand every year. FYD is focused upon building a youth population in New Zealand with a positive outlook, helping young Kiwis everywhere to discover possibility, transform their lives, and reach their full potential. FYD works with schools and groups from within the community to ensure a holistic long term approach to child, youth and community development.
FYD believes that positive development of our young people is the best weapon to fight our negative youth statistics. FYD programmes all change lives and are informed by best-practice research. With their University research partners FYD know their programmes; improve attitudes and behaviour, improve academic results, help young people set and achieve their goals, boost self-confidence, reduce truancy rates and at risk behaviours, such as substance abuse, and help young people feel more positive about the future.
