The YES programme is an online platform that encourages rangatahi aged 16-24 to take advantage of free employment-based opportunities.

Whether it’s a skills review, a coffee date, internship or a business walk-through, youth can apply for an opportunity and see what an industry looks like before they commit to a job or a degree.

Youth are the future of any industry, so it is important to nurture and train them in careers they might not think about to ensure we have a strong, skilled workforce in future.

As a youth friendly employer NMIT encourages all youth to take up as many opportunities as they can and run with them.

YES started in Dunedin in 2016 as a result of Ministry of Social Development Social Sector trials and has expanded across nine regions.

The programme is working towards zeroing the youth unemployment rate in a forward-thinking and collaborative way.
