Who we are
ImpacTauranga is a non-profit organisation operating through the Tauranga Christian Community Trust. We work to support vulnerable Youth and their Families in the Tauranga region.
This work was started in 1991 when Pastor Russell Turner and a team of dedicated young people wanted to help their peers and support them through this sometimes difficult period in their life.
While the original work of ImpacTauranga was Drug-Arm (now successfully operating as an independent ministry called Street Help - Get Smart), ImpacTauranga itself has grown into four services supporting youth and their families:
Arndt House – residential care for 12- 16 year old young people
Tauranga Youth Academy – a full secondary academic program for young people excluded from main stream education.
Impact mentoring – a 52 hour one-on-one support program for young people needing extra support and a positive role model.
Youth and Family Support services – Mentoring, Life Coaching, transition to independence training for young people, and Family/Parenting advice and strategic coaching to restore family health.
The Tauranga Christian Community Trust board is governed by 6 trustees, 3 of which were part of the founding board, and are still actively involved in the development of the service.
ImpacTauranga has an excellent team of qualified staff who work tirelessly to provide the best possible outcomes for our community.
