The Youth Service supports young people aged 16 to 19 to engage and involved in education, training, and work-based learning, as well as teaching and nurturing the life skills to be a successful contributing member of the community. This will help young people gain the skills to find a job and have an independent future. Young people work with community-based providers who give guidance, support and encouragement to help them find the education, training or work-based learning that works.

Youth Law Aotearoa -


Youth Law Tino Rangatiratanga Taitamariki is a free community law centre for children and young people nationwide. They provide free legal services to anyone aged under 25 who are unable to access legal help elsewhere, or those acting on their behalf. They're a registered charity (CC10505) and they’re part of the nationwide community law centre network. They’re the only organisation operating across NZ where children and young people can access free legal services just for them.

They provide four main services to children and young people:


The TYLA Youth Development Trust was established in 1996, tasked with finding a better means of reducing the number of young offenders in New Zealand. Their ambition is to identify ‘at risk' youth, who are on a pathway to crime, and to intervene before their wayward journeys take them too far. To empower young people at risk of offending to turn their lives around and take responsibility for their actions. They do this by:

  • Visiting schools

  • Visiting homes

  • Engaging youth with life skills learned at camp

  • Holiday programmes

  • Working collaboratively with other organisations 

This ensures information is shared and that TYLA programmes are consistently delivering the best service.


TYLA – Turn Your Life Around -

Community Approach identifies seriously ‘at risk’ young people early – before they enter the formal justice system and provides support and mentoring for young people and families in crisis. Two groups benefit from the programme, the community, which is safer and more peaceful, and the young person who stays out of the justice system and is able to explore his or her full potential as a person and citizen of society.
