Youth prosperity and wellbeing

We advocate that everyone responds with urgency to support vulnerable young people. It's important that young people stay positive, connected and well. And we need to continue to build the confidence and employability skills needed to enter and stay in the workforce. More than ever before, everyone within the NZ skills ecosystem has a responsibility to contribute to this mahi.
