Poutama Rangatahi Initiative to create more jobs
The government is allocating $13 million under the Poutama Rangatahi Initiative, to enable young people to obtain the skills and connect with employers.
According to Employment Minister Willie Jackson, it’s only right that the government allow this job scheme to help the community.
“Mā tēnei pūtea e tika ana mō te kāwana ki te mahi tā mātou rautaki i tēnei wā ki te tautoko tō tātou iwi. Nō reira, tēnei te mihi ki ngā momo hapori i tēnei wā.”
The Employment Minister says the scheme focussed on the regions.
“Tika ana ki te tautoko ngā rangatahi i roto i ngā momo rohe i tēnei wā.”
With employment, a person prospers.
