Mayors Taskforce for Jobs (MTFJ)
The Mayors Taskforce for Jobs (MTFJ) is a nationwide initiative that aims to enable people under 25 to achieve long-term economic independence. The goal of the Mayors Taskforce for Jobs is:
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 wellbeing.
The Mayor of South Taranaki and the MTFJ Steering Group work with local high schools, industry training organisations and education providers to celebrate and encourage young people to move from learning to employment.
Below are a couple of the local initiatives.
