Support NZ’s Youth This Christmas


Stuck on a gift idea this Christmas? The Foundation for Youth Development (FYD) has the answer with a gift that both recognises young artists and helps young people to reach their full potential.

FYD’s youth advisory group – Directionz – recently held a national competition for young people aged from five to 18 years to design a t-shirt or submit a photo depicting young people living their dreams.
