Tūtaki Youth Inc.
Tūtaki Youth Inc. is a not-for-profit, charitable organisation that provides a facility with cultural, education, physical, health and leadership opportunities for young people to reach their potential. We are a New Zealand Police-partnered organisation that focuses on a prevention-first model. Our purpose is to improve well-being, ensure that young people and their whanau are safe, create healthy futures, and provide pathways for individual potential to be recognised and realised.
The multi-purpose youth facility, located at 88 Juliet Street Stratford includes a board room, meeting rooms, IT suite, health room, commercial-sized kitchen, recreation area, and the Lions Den Gym & Fitness Centre. It is a place where young people can go and feel safe, interact with their peers, be surrounded by positive role models, have easy access to health and social services, and participate in activities and programmes.
The Lions Den Gym & Fitness Centre is a philanthropic endeavour developed to meet a need within the community while providing a revenue stream to help resource the charitable works Tūtaki Youth offers. It is a professionally operated community gym offering low cost 24/7 access to a well-resourced facility. Comprehensive pricing options, fitness assessments, personal training, and group classes are provided.
The free services provided by Tūtaki Youth include youth work, social work, domestic violence response and prevention, programmes, and a youth health clinic.
