Te Araroa Offers Hope is an initiative of Napier Pilot City which aims at using the Te Araroa trail, from Cape Reinga to Bluff, as an alternative classroom for a variety of youth at risk.
The trail is broken down into small achievable sections, with extra activities included. Each section we organize can range from a couple of days to a couple of weeks.
This initiative has been ongoing since 2014 with no plans on stopping. The more funding, support and volunteers available for this initiative allows us to interact and include it's positive affect on a greater number of youth at risk.
Not only does this trail act as a great achievement for anyone who accomplishes their task, it also encourages the development of appreciation for nature and their country which acts as the foundation for them to build a better life.
