Sponsor a Student

Empower through music. There are over 190,000 excluded and disadvantaged youth in Aotearoa. Crescendo Trust’s mission is to engage young people/rangatahi through music mentoring programmes.

We provide a crucial safety net for youth to learn transferable skills for employment, focus on improving mental health and wellbeing, and help them to navigate pathways towards a more positive future.

With your help, our goal is to provide 20 young people with the opportunity to participate in our music mentoring programmes annually.

Please sponsor one student today to help us reach our target of changing 20 young peoples lives this year.

Give the gift that lasts a lifetime

You have the power to give a gift that changes a young persons’ future. Your gift can create a feeling of wonder, belonging, and confidence for a young person that perhaps feels like they don’t fit the mould. 

Sponsor a student with Crescendo and you’ll help to equip them with the skills and confidence to build a positive future. Will you change a life this year for less than $1.50 a day?

Your sponsorship gives a young person the power to rewrite their future. 

Music and wellbeing skills equip our rangatahi with the toolbox and healing space they need. This is where their healing journey through music begins. 

Your support opens doors to our mentoring graduates, to come back to foster the next intake of young people as part of the Crescendo whanau. 

You can be part of that journey. Empower through music.


Yes, I would like to sponsor a student!
