Academy NZ Christchurch Youth Service
About Youth Service at Academy NZ
Academy NZ Christchurch has a Youth Service especially for 16 and 17 year olds, which has a new approach to working with young people.
Academy NZ has a team of specialist coaches based in the community who will give practical support, guidance, and encouragement to help you find the education, training or work-based learning that best suits your needs and which works for you. It is about stepping in early to help build your potential through education, training or work-based learning.
The goal of our Youth Service is to help young people find the best option for education, training or work-based learning that will help them build their skills, find a job and have an independent future.
Who is our Youth Service for?
The service is for 16 and 17 year olds who are not engaged in education, employment or training. However we can work with you if you are still at school or engaged in training and would benefit from the additional support having a personal coach would bring in helping you to stay engaged, on track and achieving.
How we can help
Signing up for Youth Service couldn’t be easier, and it’s completely free. We will provide guidance and practical support to help you make the right decisions for your personal situation. Our coaches will also help you get the services and support you need.
How will it work?
Coaches work with you on a one to one basis in an environment where you feel most comfortable. The kinds of things we can do with you are:
- talk about where you are now and where you want to be
- figure out what might be stopping you succeeding at school, training or in work-based learning
- sort out the steps you need to take to get into education, training or work-based learning
- put together an action plan that will help you reach your goals
- help you get back to school or to apply for training courses
- support you whilst in school or training
- check your progress on a regular basis
- help you stay on track to achieve your goals
- update your action plan when things change
- be your coach, mentor, friend or go-to person
