Taranaki Youth Service helps young people aged between 16-18 to access education, training or work-based learning. These young people are Not in Education Employment or Training (NEET) or are receiving a Work and Income Youth Payment (YP) or Young Parent Payment (YPP).
Staff support the young person to make better choices by putting together individual action plans, linking them with education and training providers and running initiatives around budgeting, parenting and work readiness. This service is based at the Tui Ora site in Maratahu St, New Plymouth.
