Meet the team

iconz4girlz began in 2007 with the generous gift of ICONZ resources from Boys’ Brigade NZ. 


These were picked up by a team of four volunteers who then developed them into the programme we have today. Two of the original team still continue to administer, develop and oversee the ministry with the other two continuing as Associate members taking on specific assigned tasks. Additional administration work is taken on from time to time by the Girls’ Brigade staff.
