About Us

OUR VISION – ‘Bigger, brighter futures in the community.’

At Life101 we’re extremely enthusiastic about the Life101 concept and the individuals we’re working with within our four Areas of Focus.

Since 2013 Life101 has been working extensively with individuals in the community, within secondary schools and within New Zealand’s justice system, providing one, three and six-day transformational life and financial skills programmes.

Life101 programmes provide individuals with direction, motivation and relevant hard and soft-skills to be able to make a positive and life-changing difference in their lives.
