2019 saw YES take out the Gold Good Award in Australia for Social Impact. This was HUGE for YES and such an incredible confirmation to our team and all participants in this program. This year also saw the handover of the YES programme to the community in Eastern Southland.
2020 is looking to be even bigger! We have been given more funding for Dunedin and are looking to roll out the programme in 3 new regions in the first half of the year!
Having secured more funding for Dunedin means that we are able to invest in new initiatives including micro-credentialing both employers and youth for their interactions with our platform and have a school facing role that engages with all Dunedin schools to excite the youth still in secondary education.
Expanding to a new location is exciting but how about 3?! and all in the first half of the year!! We can't give away where these locations are just yet but what we can tell you is that we will be in both islands by the middle of next year! Keep an eye out for these announcements coming early 2020.
