Crossroads Youth with a Future

Crossroads Youth with a Future (CYWF) is a charitable trust based in Aranui. They deliver programs that benefit the youth of Eastern Christchurch. CYWF was formed in 1998 to facilitate the work their project director had been doing within the community.

Leveraging their Stay Real programme in schools, the Trust has developed the Fa’asu Art Programme, which is designed to work with young Pacific Island and Maori males in the Eastern Suburbs who are at risk of harm from alcohol or drug use, helping them to learn practical skills and have opportunities to build confidence and self esteem.
