MTFJ Communications

The MTFJ prides itself on being a network that consists of New Zealand's Mayors and their communities. With this collectivity comes great knowledge and experience which is what makes us the strongest and best placed group to ensure all young people are given the opportunity to fulfill their potential.

The primary role of the MTFJ is to manage and connect the national network to ensure all Mayors are updated, informed and connected to what is happening locally, regionally and nationally. The MTFJ does this through the following communication channels and resources.


MTFJ e-Newsletter 'Our Youth, Our Future'

Mayors are not only proud advocates for their communities, but they are also working to ensure that every young person in their respective communities has a positive pathway to training or employment. Our Youth, Our Future is an e-Newsletter which spreads the word on these various stories, case studies and initiatives to assist in sharing local wins as well as the sectors knowledge and best practice.
