Outward Bound Highlights from Isla

Shift helped to send Isla to Outward Bound in September! Here's some highlights from her adventure to Anikiwa, they include dolphins, a marathon and a little insight into what helped Isla get through all the challenges she was faced with. Check it out!

Shift The Trend is back, and it’s the last workshop of the year!

This ain’t your average workshop! Join Chloe for an interactive session which will provide you with an overview of Shift, how and why we are doing things differently, the design principles we use, Shift tips and tricks and tangible tools you can use to better engage with young women.

This is an affordable professional development opportunity for anyone with an interest in improving wellbeing and physical activity engagement of young women.

We only have 10 places, so book your spot fast if you’re keen.

“I enjoyed learning about co-design and the methods used to gather and share ideas. It was cool how we got to have a go at these as it made the session more interactive.” – previous participant


Wow!! We are so proud of the Girl Up Lower Hutt group for pulling off such an awesome Bike-a-thon fundraiser event over the weekend. You are all such an inspiration and amazing role models and leadHERs in your communities.

A couple of the young women leading this event were part of Shift's LeadHERship programme earlier this year. It's so cool seeing these young women flourish and collectively work on this mahi to help improve the wellbeing of others.

All money raised from this event is supporting SchoolCycle, an initiative to empower girls around the world, by providing bicycles to help them access education and stay in school.

Check out the photos from the event!

At the end of October the Hutt Valley High School Junior Shift LeadHERs visited the Woburn Apartments Retirement Village. The girls wanted to do something as a group to reach out to people in their community. They each baked something to bring along to a special morning tea for the village residents. It was a really special time of seeing the richness of inter-generational connection.

Well done girls! You did something out of your comfort zone, built connections with the community around you and did it all with joy! Now that’s leadHERship!
