Our connection with Youthline

Initialize is privileged to be working in affiliation with Youthline to support and empower young New Zealanders. Find out more about Youthline on their website here. The Initialize programme was originally inspired by Youthline’s highly regarded Personal Development and Helpline Counsellor Training courses - you can discover more about Youthline training opportunities here. Initialize would like to acknowledge and thank Youthline for allowing us to draw from their community education resources in creating this programme.

giving back

We donate 10% of all profit to Youthline.

There are many young people in our communities who are struggling and desperately need support right now.

Youthline’s phone, text, IM and email services support young people 24/7 and rely primarily on donations to keep operating.

If you would like to donate personally to Youthline, please check out the donations page on their website.
