Welcome to


serving the community of Otorohanga since 2005

Welcome to Thrive Otorohanga.

For ten years, the Harvest Centre Charitable Trust has been serving the community of Otorohanga with MPOWA, VERGE, Harvest Rock and Movies for senior citizens.

But, just like the operating system on your computer, we realised it was time for an upgrade.

Over the last few months we have partnered with an organisation in Auckland to put together a business plan and nail down our vision and mission statements. We have also partnered with a Youth Services Provider in the Hibiscus Coast area to piggyback off their success and learn how to do things smarter.

All that has led to a name change – We are now “THRIVE OTOROHANGA YOUTH TRUST” – and a diversification in our Board of Trustees.


Programs designed for full primary school aged children which includes an after school and holiday program.

We also have a rock climbing incentive program that caters to full primary school and college students.

A  mentoring program that is driven by its values and is focussed on helping youth with their personal development both socially and academically. 

Thrive Learning Hub is a safe place for young people to work towards achieving their NZQA Level 2 New Zealand Certificate in Foundation Skills.

Specifically tailored programs to assist our young people with mentoring in school and support as they transition to the big wide world of tertiary education, training and employment.

An indoor rock climbing facility with natural featured walls. Fun for the whole family catering for beginners and seasoned climbers alike.
