Kānoa – the regional economic development and investment unit that sits within the Ministry of Business and Innovation – have granted Youth Inspire access to the He Poutama Rangatahi (HPR) funding. This funding stream is dedicated to supporting programmes that improve employment and educational outcomes for rangatahi most at risk of long-term unemployment.
“With this funding, we will deliver a targeted Youth Inspire programme called ‘Inspiring Youth Futures’, says Youth Inspire General Manager, Ali Black.
The Hutt Valley Chamber of Commerce will provide crucial support by connecting businesses to the programme. The Chamber will help ensure there will be work experience placements, site visits, and direct employment opportunities for the rangatahi.
Helen Down, CEO of the Hutt Valley Chamber of Commerce says, “Our business community is largely made up of local people who are very keen to support our local young people into local careers. We work with businesses every day helping them to give young people new career opportunities. We are delighted to work alongside Youth Inspire on such an innovative and much needed programme.”
Ms Black is confident this partnership will bring benefits to youth and the region, both socially and economically.
