Free to NZ Schools
Facilitated by Young Enterprise

The programme aims to encourage rangatahi to learn about business and enterprise, develop work-ready skills, and connect with local Māori entrepreneurs who are sharing their talents, passion and skills across Aotearoa and the world.

In order to achieve the above we may decide to select a general theme for the event such as the Taiao or environment around us, which can be interpreted as the natural environment (land, waterways, forestry) or the city/town around rangatahi.
