Overview of what CTOA provides

We Support Young people to choose meaningful pathways

As a social enterprise, CTOA works to provide opportunities for young people in Aotearoa through a range of commercial services. We generate income through gigs, event management, video and sound production, and integrate this into our CTOA programmes. Not only does this provide CTOA with revenue, but also real-life work experience and income opportunities for our rangatahi. 

Our clients benefit from the talents of industry professionals and the input from our emerging artists. We have the ability to not only shift young peoples’ lives but also to shift the industry as our fingers are on the pulse

What We DO!

Sound Production

Industry professionals mentor rangatahi to create soundtracks for a variety of needs. We take your brief and deliver quality work.

Program Delivery

A custom program for each partner. We’ll take the basics of our flagship LinkUp programme and tailor it to meet your groups’ needs. We combine 1:1 and group work with online tutorials that can be completed at your own pace.


With 150 talented youth artists on our books we are ready to make your next event come to life. 

Whether you’re looking for entertainment for your next work drinks, a covers band for a birthday party, or a line up of musicians for a community event, we have you covered. Need an audio engineer and a PA system, yep we’ve got that too. We have all the gear for hire or can use yours.
