The main purpose of the Trust is to empower young Chinese people to maximise their potential, and ultimately to contribute to New Zealand society.

The Trust aims to equip youths of Chinese origin, residing in New Zealand, with the necessary social, leadership and life skills to become fully integrated and contributing members of New Zealand society. It aims to address the alienation felt by many young Chinese migrants who are prevented from involvement in the mainstream community due to language and cultural barriers. Through the Chinese Youth Developmental Programme, the Trust hopes to encourage the development of positive interests from a young age, to promote local community involvement, and to provide these youths with positive social and support networks to build self-esteem and a sense of belonging.
