Kia ora Shifterhood!
What a year it has been!
It’s a little crazy to think 2018 is coming to an end already and that Shift is going into its fourth year of delivery in 2019.
This year, Shift has seen 7,238 ‘participations’ by young women at over 400 Just Shift It sessions across the region! Some of the most popular activities this year were boxing, Adrenalin Forest, rock climbing, mindfulness art, and yoga. We are in total awe of the young women that come along to learn, inspire, grow and move. You are our reason why!
We’ve had 226 new LeadHERs through the Shift LeadHERship programme, 46 people have attended Shift The Trend workshops and 149 young women attended EmpowHER 2018. Shift is now in five cities (and expanding in 2019) and works alongside 22 education settings.
We are forever grateful to all our funders and partners that have invested in us to empower young women in our communities through movement, wellbeing, and leadership. To our funders - Sport Wellington, Ministry of Youth Development, Compass Health, NZ Community Trust, Wellington Community Trust and the U.S. Department of State through the Global Sports Mentoring Programme - thank you!
Also, to our amazing delivery partners, who we could not do this work without, Ignite Sport, Wellington City Council, Upper Hutt Community Youth Trust, and Kapiti Youth Support - Thank you! We look forward to continuing our partnerships in 2019.
And finally, to all our readers and followers, thank you for all of your kindness and support over the year! We love you.
We wish you all a very merry Christmas and a safe and happy holiday.
