  • > More About Youth Service:

    Community Colleges NZ has been contracted to provide a free "Youth Service" in the South Canterbury, Otago, Southland, North Canterbury, Nelson/Tasman and Blenheim/Kaikoura areas. 

    The aim of the service is to get young people into education, training or work-based learning. If you are 16 or 17 years old and not in education, training or work, Youth Service can probably help you. We may also be able to help you if you are 15 years old and no longer attending school.

    Check out the Youth Service website for more info. Our Youth Advisors will talk through your options for education, training or work-based learning and will help you plan to get to where you want to be. Part of the service is providing you with guidance & support to help you make the right decisions for your situation and to help you gain access to services and extra support you may need along the way.
