Youth Transition Services: Lessons for Service Development
Youth transition services aim to assist young people to make the transition from school into further education, training or employment. This report presents key development and operational lessons from three youth transition services –
- Taranaki Connections in Waitara
- The Pulse in Whangarei
- Actionworks in Christchurch.
These lessons are presented to inform organisations that are considering or are in the process of developing their own youth transition services. The report details the three key outcomes that emerged from the site interviews: the principles that underpin youth transition service work; major operational issues; and approaches to working with youth.
