Well we are a full 2 months into 2020 and it has been a whirlwind start to the year, we are as busy as ever here at YES which means we have some exciting things to share with you.
We have started engaging with our local high schools to discuss the awesome opportunities available to senior students through YES, we also have 3 full days of Open Sessions (a walkthrough/talk through of local business in a variety of industries) coming up so watch this space! The Open Sessions are a great opportunity to gain exposure to different industries and working environments ask questions and be inspired.
Lastly, we now have our own space at Innov8 HQ otherwise known as the YES Desk. For those of you who are unaware Innov8 HQ Co-working space is a modern business marae that embodies community and shared experiences, they have a strong youth focus and we are lucky enough to have them as one of 80 YES employers, making it the perfect place for us to share information and opportunities with our rangatahi it's a safe space to check out the YES platform and ask those burning questions, we also provide access to technology and wifi for the youth who prefer a little more independence on their visit. The YES desk at Innov8 HQ is open to 16 - 24-year-olds Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2.30-5 pm. Come along and connect with one of our team members to discuss your interests and aspirations so we might help you find the right pathway on your journey to employment.
