Inspiring young people
At Partners Porirua, we want to ensure the young people in our communities have a positive outlook on life in particular, their working life.
By bringing role models from business and community together and connecting them with young people we are helping to inspire them about their future and raising their awareness of the wonderful opportunities that lie ahead.
For some students this is the only opportunity they have to learn about the working world before they leave school.
What we do
We connect businesses, community and individuals to young people in our community who are looking for opportunities to explore what the world has to offer and what they can give in return.
We do this through our education programmes, which place business mentors into schools to share knowledge; and we provide opportunities for young people to enter the workforce through JOBfest, our Youth Service and through the Youth 2 Work movement activity with businesses who are committed to growing local talent.
Our staff, trustees and youth representatives are committed to helping young people develop their talents and achieve every success they want.
Our Youth representatives
Our youth representatives join the trustees to ensure that we have a strong youth voice guiding what we do and keeping us true to our organisation’s core values.
