Welcome to TYLA Youth Development Trust
TYLA works within local communities in New Zealand to deliver tailor-made programmes that help inspire at-risk youth to turn their lives around.
Who we are
The TYLA Youth Development Trust was established in 1996 to identify a better means of reducing the number of young offenders in New Zealand and providing support and choices to the young people at risk of offending.
Our ambition is to identify at-risk youth, who are on a pathway to crime, and to intervene before their wayward journeys take them too far.
TYLA currently has two programmes in place: Otara and Auckland Central West. The TYLA Trust, in conjunction with the Government, local community and New Zealand Police, is now looking to expand its programmes into more communities.
