Who we are

Limitless is a Charitable Trust with the mission to equip young New Zealanders to lead lives of passion and purpose.

We see young people better equipped to navigate with confidence toward careers where their creativity, innovation, strengths and values can be unleashed. Our vision ultimately is to see young people with greater agency over their
career pathways.

Based in Ōtautahi Christchurch, Limitless empower secondary students to discover their
strengths and values, and to envision future potential careers based on this self discovery.
We create space for young people to explore their “what’s next?” for after high school.

We will each work around 80,000 hours in our life, and research tells us young people today
are likely to work 17 different jobs over five careers in their lifetime. Limitless helps youth explore the topic of career pathways in
meaningful ways. Our kōrero
give them a new sense of confidence and focus.

Limitless was founded in 2016 by Christchurch-based April McLennan at age 18 through a social enterprise accelerator. We quickly grew an epic community to see the Limitless vision come to life and continue to iterate and grow.

Our Programmes

The Limitless Conference programme focus on exploring Strengths, connecting the dots and inspiration. We recommend the Limitless Online course to be taken prior to Limitless Conference so we can build from this.

Year 10 Limitless Online courses run
throughout the year. This is a fun and
engaging module based course that plays
a key part in building confidence, self
awareness and greater agency for
pathways to work.
