The youthHub project profiles the strengths of Rotorua young people and connects them with local employment and training/education opportunities using an integrated IT platform. The aim of the project is to increase positive training and employment outcomes for young people.
Over the past two years youthHub continued to grow, with 1200 online users, 80 businesses and 82 service providers on board. Thanks to funding from Bay Brighter Futures youthHub Rotorua provides a Partnership Broker and two part time Youth Navigators to support the Project Coordinator, and enables the project to gain a ‘turbo boost’.
