On this podcast, Jeremy and Rowan are joined by Ryan Donaldson, General Manager of Whangarei Youth Space. Together they explore the problem of youth unemployment, how the class of 2020 will be effected long-term by COVID-19, and the importance of community, mentorship and intergenerational pastoral relationships.
