GET TO KNOW US
GetReal was started in 2018 by Auckland-based Jeff and Simona Turin. As a household with two working parents, for years, every school holiday was a two-week patchwork of camps, Minecraft classes, trampoline centres, sports and babysitting.
Jeff and Simona wanted to create a way to connect kids with their communities; introduce them to people who live differently than themselves; and show them that, even as kids, they can already make a real difference to other people.
GetReal is intended to provide young people with experiences that build the empathy, gratitude, awareness and self-esteem that can make positive community engagement and doing for others into lifelong habits.
Our Mission: To inspire and empower young people to shape a better future by taking positive action in their communities over their lifetimes
