BGI Challenge for Change 2021

Yesterday evening Dame Cindy and Dr Davies honoured the 18 rangatahi who recently graduated from the BGI (Wellington Boys' and Girls' Institute) Challenge for Change programme. BGI has been helping young people of Wellington since 1883, teaching them life-skills through awesome experiences. Yesterday’s graduates from Challenge for Change have completed a year-long partnership with their mentors, and spoke about what they learned in the programme. One mentee, Zion, gave his first-ever live performance on the guitar, playing a classic from Green Day.
