Our Annual Fundraiser is go!

Posted Monday April 3, 2023

Every year we work with over 1600 rakatahi | young people so that they can take their next positive steps in their education, employment and future. Toss the Boss is Southern Youth Development's annual fundraiser where local leaders face their fears while raising funds to support our youth programmes across Clutha, Dunedin and Waitaki.

Southern Youth Development empowers rakatahi to achieve their own successes and we want them to be the best person they can be. The past few years have been more challenging than ever, and rakatahi are finding it challenging to engage in education and employment through traditional pathways.

At Southern Youth Development, we use activity-based learning, real-life scenarios and youth-led activities to be able to promote good life choices, goal setting and confidence building so that everyone has the best chance to succeed. Help us to continue our life-changing mahi by donating to our campaign today. Every $50 counts for every youth programme we do!

At the end of their fundraising campaign, each local leader's efforts will be rewarded with a 35 metre abseil from the upper service gantry at Forsyth Barr Stadium. It's a once-in-a-lifetime chance to do something challenging and all for a good cause.
