THE ST JOHN YOUTH PROGRAMME

St John Youth offers two unique but distinctive programmes. The penguin programme is for young people aged 6-8 years and the cadet programme for young people aged 8-18 years.

The Cadet Programme offers young people the Grand Priors Award scheme which is the flagship of our youth programme. As the principle syllabus for our cadets, it provides the framework for our leaders to run educational fun and exciting extra-mural programmes and activities.  St John offers our young people exciting opportunities through a varied programme that is tailored to individual needs; let’s face it, not every young person is the same! 

St John has existed in New Zealand since 1885 and is part of a global organisation known as the Order of St John, which is active in more than 40 countries. The Order of St John can trace its history back to a hospital set up in Jerusalem during the Crusades over a thousand years ago.

The Penguin Programme is intended to be educational, but also great fun, often involving games, activities and sports. Penguin Groups frequently organise trips, camps, excursions, picnics and also attend other St John events and competitions. When a penguin turns 8 years old they transition into the Cadet Programme.

Youth Leaders Our fun and outgoing Youth Leaders undertake professional development and are appointed based on a rigorous back ground check process. All leaders complete an annual police check process and are the best people for the roles they hold. Youth Leaders are an important part of the St John youth programme, they plan, run and organise the divisional nights and provide the necessary supervison.

Family and whanau are also very welcome to join our programmes as a leader. If you are interested in joining us as a youth leader in either of our programmes we want to hear from you.
