The Youth Service works with teen parents and 16 or 17-years-old who receive financial support from the government and assists them to get the education or work skills needed to achieve their goals. It’s about stepping in early to help these young people gain the skills to get a job and have an independent future.
Partners Porirua staff also facilitate parenting and budgeting courses. Working with other community organisations, it helps youth to develop money management skills and teen parents are encouraged and inspired to grow great kids. These young people are also assisted with their driver licences and with learning about future careers.
