Challenge 2000 in Porirua

Challenge 2000 has had strong ties to the Porirua community since it began in 1988. Since 2010, Challenge 2000 has provided social workers and youth workers in four Porirua Colleges. We have positive and valued relationships with these Colleges and their young people and families. We have also provided services and programmes in the youth justice sector and worked with whanau and their communities to utilise the strengths of our rangatahi in the Porirua area.
