Our Impact

In 2019 33% of our young people transitioned into employment and education. The remaining 67% of our young people will continue with our programme and remain in alternative education.

Crescendo has a vision of empowered NZ youth with a strong sense of self and the courage to make positive decisions for their future. We strongly believe that anyone, given the right environment, encouragement and support can flourish into the best version of themselves. At Crescendo, we have a passion for creative arts and believe in their ability to create strength and confidence in those who embrace them.

Our point of difference is that, through our mentoring programmes in music, radio, film and photography, young people are able to directly engage and connect with people working in the creative industries. This enables them to learn about a wide range of industry relationships, knowledge and skills. 

Our rangatahi benefit from exposure to real-world industry experience and training connecting them to employment opportunities and access to further education pathways. 

The focus is slightly different with each individual, but the goal remains the same; to empower the young person to make positive changes in his/her life.
