Shore Junction is a youth innovation hub in the heart of Takapuna, Auckland, designed as a space for young people aged 13 - 24 to connect, belong, and grow.

Shore Junction offers various spaces, programming and services to support innovation, learning, well-being and creativity, enabling young people to accelerate their potential and embark on pathways to a successful future.

In developing Shore Junction, they are creating a mechanism for young people to redefine their aspirations, whilst also developing the critical skills, connections and networks that they need to succeed.

At Shore Junction, young people will lay the foundations for their future roles as entrepreneurs, business leaders, community champions and influencers - tomorrow's generation of positive change - makers.

Creating Impact That Matters

Shore Junction is focused on achieving positive outcomes for young people, including:

  • Enhancing young people's sense of belonging, connectedness, confidence, sense of purpose, self-worth, and efficacy
  • Measurably improving youth wellbeing
  • Supporting young people to successfully transition to further education, employment, and enterprise
  • Strengthening youth voice, with young people actively influencing local, regional and national decision-making
  • Growing a new generation of engaged, community-driven and socially conscious leaders

Shore Junction will support outcomes for young people, by working collaboratively with community, government, and business. This approach will generate a much wider impact, including:

  • A cross-sector "community" of local businesses, youth service providers and community organisations working more collaboratively
  • Communities that are more youth-friendly and play an active role in supporting youth success
  • A more cohesive youth sector, with innovative youth development practices that are replicable and scalable across New Zealand
