Our Team

Our dream is to be the inspiration for ‘at risk' youth to lead a better life. And we believe that early intervention, from ages 9-16, can turn lives around.


We recognise that family support is a critical component of the process and that a collaborative, supportive and caring environment needs to be established at the family level.


TYLA has developed a collaborative community programme with proven results, having graduated many students through our programmes. 


We work with a range of partner providers to structure individual programmes that best meet the needs of each TYLA member. Our ongoing evaluation and monitoring process ensures all preferred partner programmes operate to the highest possible standard and are individually effective.


The TYLA programme is instigated through local communities and is therefore shaped to meet the needs of each community it operates in. The programme is endorsed by the Government, supported by the New Zealand Police and engaged in by local communities.
