Connecting People With Opportunities

Ko koe te anga mua, whakarangatirahia te tokorua.  


We support and empower young people to pursue their dreams and aspirations.  Since 2014 we have been connecting young people with opportunities for a better Aotearoa New Zealand.

We know who they are and they know who they are and we want you to know who they are as well.  Check out some of our young change makers, our future leaders, who are a testament to the work we love to do.

Silicon Valley Experience, San Francisco 2016

In 2016 our organisation supported Carym to participate in the Silicon Valley Experience.  At the time, Carym was a Year 12 student at Okaihau College who aspired to work in the design and animation industry.  His achievements to date include DVC Student of the Year (2014), NCEA 1 with excellence endorsement in Design and Visual Communications, PE and English (2015) and Student Representative.

He travelled with six other students from Northland, Auckland and Christchurch to San Francisco to visit some of the largest firms on the globe and experience for themselves the world's leading technology hub.  The trip involved visiting companies such as Apple, Google, Facebook and IDEO and many other business impacting the world every day.

For Carym the most interesting fact of technology is the creativity it brings out in people.  Technology has been a big part of his life and he finds himself being much more creative and confident with the use of technology.
