Strengthening the pathways for youth between education and employment across Southland. Southland Youth Futures is Great South's regional career exploration programme focused on improving outcomes for Southland youth and reducing the number of NEETS (youth not in education, employment or training) across the region. The programme hosts employer talks in schools, coordinates workplace visits for students and helps to establish connections between students and local employers by encouraging employers to embrace youth friendly-standards in their workplace and invest in the region's youth.
