Youth Futures

Youth Futures is here to help young people (16 – 24) in Hawkes Bay to get into training and employment.

Too many of our young people are unemployed; even one young unemployed person is too many but in Hawkes Bay we have the second highest rate of unemployment in New Zealand for our young people.  But at the same time, some of our employers have vacancies for skilled workers.  So we need to make sure that our young people know where the jobs are, have the required skills and are employed.  That way, Hawkes Bay will have a sustainable work force, a healthy economy and a good standard of living for all our people.

A group of passionate community leaders have come together to make sure that young people in Hawkes Bay have the chance to be employed and skilled.
