> About Youth Service
Youth Service at Community College Nelson provides two services to youth in the
Nelson and Tasman region:
1. To assist 16-17 yr olds not already engaged in education, employment or training to achieve
sustained outcomes in these areas.
2. To assist young people receiving financial assistance from Work & Income to comply with their
obligations and achieve sustained education, training or employment outcomes.
Community Colleges NZ have been contracted to provide a new free "Youth Service"
in the Nelson / Tasman, Otago, Southland, South Canterbury, North Canterbury and
Blenheim / Kaikoura regions.
The aim of the service is to get young people into education, training or work-based learning.
If you are 16 or 17 years old and not in education, training or work, Youth Service can probably
help you. We may also be able to help you if you are 15 years old and no longer attending school.
Check out the Youth Service website for more info. Our Youth Advisors will talk through your
optionsfor education, training or work-based learning and will help you plan to get to where you
want to be. Part of the service is providing you with guidance & support to help you make the
right decisions for your situation and to help you gain access to services and extra support
you may need along the way.
