We’re proud to call these amazing organisations our friends and supporters.

Stand Tall Community Trust

At Stand Tall we believe in a bright, sustainable, connected and prosperous future for Aotearoa and our youth’s ability to build the future they want to see.

This future needs new skills and a new mindset to be fostered and developed today. We partner and create the conditions required by youth to unlock their talent and nurture their entrepreneurial spirit.

Together we increase visibility of and access to pathways and opportunities for young people to be the future they want to see.
