Mayors Taskforce For Jobs

0% Youth Unemployment

The South Taranaki District Council and the Mayors taskforce for Jobs brings together youth, employers, trainers, educators and the wider youth sector to develop ways to make this vision a reality:

Vision: “That all young people under 25 years be engaged in appropriate education, training, work or other activities that contribute to their long-term economic independence and well-being.”  

At least two events are held each year which aim to celebrate youth, or bring youth, educators and employers together. The Youth to Work Awards are held every second year and provide an opportunity to encourage and applaud the achievements of our young people, employers, trainers and educators who live or work in South Taranaki. These events contribute to making the above vision a reality.

While this activity is happening in South Taranaki, the mayors of all Taranaki districts are onboard with the vision, and are taking steps to implement it.
