Our Aims and Objects

To promote within New Zealand the education, health and well-being of people by providing encouragement and opportunity for the gaining of knowledge and awareness of:

The culture of the countryside, towns, cities and peoples of New Zealand.

The environment and the study of the same.

The culture of other countries and peoples.

In furtherance of its charitable objects the Association shall provide hostels or similar accommodation, promote educational and recreational activities, facilitate travel and practice and promote environmental sustainability.

 

Annual Reports

Annual Reports help us keep a record of YHA New Zealand and our progress, and consider future challenges and opportunities. Copies are sent to AGM attendees each year and are available only once the Board and membership approve them. The Reports reflect our commitment to triple bottom line reporting: people, planet and profit.
