Youth are hurting
We are in a youth mental health crisis. Our community organizations have never experienced such a spike in demand and we are alarmed by the intensity and complexity of needs expressed by our youth today.
The Grove Hubs are safe spaces where youth are empowered to take the lead in their own mental health and wellness journey, where they walk into our doors feeling like they belong.
Every Grove Hub is a one-stop-shop where youth from 12-26 can drop in to connect with friends and also access local support and mental health services. All programs are designed by youth for youth, responding to the unique needs of their neighbourhood or community. Right now, 3 hubs are ready to open in Wellington and your gift today provides direct, tangible help to youth seeking connections.

When youth walk into The Grove, they tell their story once and find belonging immediately. Our integrated and confidential data collection system grows with them and moves with them when they visit other hubs.
