For over 30 years the Catholic Youth Team has been working with the young people of the Canterbury and West Coast regions. The CYT does a wonderful job of running dynamic and positive youth events and supporting local youth workers and volunteers but our vision and activities go well beyond this.

Our programmes help strengthen and transform young people and assist them with opportunities to build a lifelong resilience that comes with faith, hope, and love. We are working with others to build safe and healthy environments and communities where our youth and families/whanau can engage with positive peers and mentors who care genuinely about them and will walk with them on a lifelong journey. We offer young people support and resources that will see them through the toughest of times help them heal and be there to celebrate with them in the times of rejoicing.
