SPIRIT GRANTS ON OFFER
Foundation North announced $100,000 towards The Spirit of Adventure Trust’s youth scholarships last week. The scholarships would support youths from Auckland and Northland to attend a Youth Development Programme delivered on board New
Zealand’s iconic Tall Ship - Spirit of New Zealand. Maori and Pacifica students attending secondary schools who are participating with the Trust would be the focus of the funding. The Youth Development Voyage programme helps to build confidence, resilience and selfesteem in youths, and helps them get outside their comfort zone to face challenges they never thought they could.
