Certificates and Celebrations All Round at Latest YES Event!

By Jake McKay | Posted: Sunday July 10, 2016

We couldn't have asked for a better turn out to our Youth Employment Success Celebration event - we received over 100 RSVP's! We even got a bit of press coverage from TVNZ to boot!

A massive thank you to everyone who came along to our YES Employers Celebration Event! We came together to celebrate the success stories heard to date and to honour the local employers doing their bit in support of local youth employment!

A night full of nibbles, drinks and warm fuzzies all round, we presented 29 of our YES employers with their framed 'We Say YES' certificates and resource toolkits. 

A special thank you to our three speakers of the night, John Allen (Regional Commissioner for Social Development), Emma Hamilton (Regional Labour Market Manager) and Rebecca Twemlow (Managing Director, Firebrand), and to Otago Polytechnic for the amazing venue and catering!

P.S. Want to see a little bit of footage from the night? Check out our image gallery below, or have a watch of the story TVNZ ran on One News about YES here!
