Challenge 2000 is a professional, innovative, responsive, dynamic and passionate Youth Development, Community and Family Social Work Agency. We work mainly throughout the Wellington region, providing a wide range of services and programmes to children, young people, families and community groups. We also provide these programmes and project work throughout Aotearoa New Zealand. We have a large team of amazing people, with forty full time staff and over five hundred volunteers. Our whanau are from all walks of life and want to make a difference and build a positive, accepting community and country. If you want to get involved contact us today!

Holiday Programmes and Camps 2018

These first two weeks of October are an exciting time for Challenge 2000 staff and volunteers, as we run a number of programmes.

Students from colleges in Porirua and the Hutt Valley are involved in holiday programmes in both of these locations.

Activities have been devised to help these young people grow in confidence, self-awareness and the ability to   collaborate with others.

Other young people from around the Wellington region are away in various parts of the country with Challenge 2000. There is a Wāhine Toa camp in Rotorua and a Hero’s Journey retreat in Dunedin. There is also a group of young men reconnecting with their ancestral roots in Tūhoe country. Another group is also canoeing down the Whanganui River.

                      As you can imagine, providing these transformative, resilience-building opportunities involves a lot of work. We are extremely grateful to those who support our engagement with young people. If you would like to contribute to this important work, our back account number is 01-0519-0057660-00.
