It takes a Village to raise a Child...



Youth Central runs at the Kelston Boys High School Gym in Kelston every Friday evening from 4pm to 8pm in the school Terms.In previous years, since 2002, Youth Central has run out of the New Lynn Community Centre, but shifted to Kelston on & has been running successfully every week. The programme has a strong sports & recreation focus and is targeted at intermediate to high school ages (12-18).

Activities available are: basketball, volleyball, indoor hockey, indoor touch and table tennis. We organize several games like Touch, Dodge ball and a variety of team games. There is also a video games area with 2 TV’s and WII™, XBOX™ & PLAYSTATION™ games set up.

Free food & drinks are part of the programme & occasionally we are able to do some baking which goes in an instant.

We have a solid group who regularly attend and there has been a strong “buy in” from youths with in the local community. Many of youths attending live in the Kelston area and surrounding suburbs, New Lynn, Glendene & Avondale.

We have a growing group of young leaders coming through this programme who are helping to setup, pack down & lead in team sports. They are building towards becoming the future leaders of Youth Central & we value their time & ideas given to build this programme.

The Village Trust who has a heart for young people, especially within the West Auckland area & value the future of Youth Central.
