Shift: encouraging physical activity and wellbeing

Shift is a project that aims to increase the physical activity and wellbeing of young Wellington women.

About Shift

Wellington City Council partners with The Shift Foundation to deliver programmes that empower young women (aged 12-20) to:

  • take charge of their wellbeing
  • fall in love with physical activity
  • develop leadership skills.

Programmes and events are free or low cost, and are generally delivered in schools across the city.
