Making the Difference

Founded by Malcolm Cameron on the premise that young people can and do 'make a difference', Southern Youth Development believes that resilience in young people is built through positive life experiences.

About Us

We facilitate quality fun experiences that encourage rakatahi to become self-supporting and valued members of their communities.

We enable rakatahi to find out more about themselves and the difference they make.

Southern Youth Development has been helping young people find out who they are and where they fit in since 1987.
