All about Inspiring the Future

Inspiring the Future is an exciting new programme that’s coming to schools across Aotearoa.

Based on research from Aotearoa and overseas, Inspiring the Future has been created to broaden young people’s horizons, help challenge stereotypes and address unconscious biases that can limit their potential.

Being part of an Inspiring the Future event is a powerful experience that gives young people a strong sense of the possibilities.

At an Inspiring the Future event, young people hear from people in their own communities, learn about different jobs and why people love doing them, as well as how those people got started and the challenges they faced along the way.
