Our Partnering Charity
Join us at Neon Night Run 2020 as we run, walk and dance our way through the course stacked with BRIGHT glow sticks to help lighten up those dark times our youth find themselves in.
In 2018, in Aotearoa 137 young people died by suicide and it is estimated another 3500 tried to take their own lives. While Government agencies are doing their best, some kids are stuck waiting up to six months to receive the counselling they so urgently need.
I AM HOPE is the youth and community focused support group run by The Key to Life Charitable Trust, started by Mike King. For the last three years Key To Life have been promoting positive attitudinal societal change in schools and communities up and down the country, and funding private care and counselling for young people stuck-in-the-mud on waiting lists.
We know kids want to take agency of their own mental health development AND their communities’. We give kids permission to do just that, and contribute directly to the social change we’re all working towards.
We speak and communicate directly to and with kids. We are unconventional, grassroots, provocative and anti-establishment simply because we know that our approach is effective at engaging with kiwis.
