About Our Free Programme


Our FREE Mentoring programme aims to help the Youth in our community gain in self esteem and confidence, develop coping strategies, and become resilient, independent, supportive youngsters who are a great example to their peer group, whanau and community. With such life skills, our Youth are more likely to grow into balanced individuals who are able to resist falling into the harmful habits of alcohol and drug addiction that are common in our community.

This is the only such scheme in our area with a proven success rate, and we believe this is because we use music as a mentorship tool, a medium which the attendees already love, and which naturally facilitates growth. The Youth work collaboratively towards performance goals, which gives them a huge amount of confidence, and creates a sense of belonging. At Be Free, they create strong friendships as they mutually support and nurture each other.

Visit our Testimonials to find out how the kids, and their families, are benefiting from our programme.

Be Free Youth regularly perform in public, and we actively seek collaborative work with other Youth groups.

We are a non-denominational, independent, outcome-values based programme who welcome support from our community. We accept youth from all cultures and religions, and offer a positive, nurturing environment where kids can thrive.
