Young New Zealanders make an important contribution to the New Zealand economy every day, but they’re often perceived and spoken about in deficit economic terms. This workshop empowers practitioners of youth development to make the connections between positive youth development outcomes and the skills, dispositions and competencies needed to thrive in an increasingly uncertain economic future. This workshop will combine compelling data from here and overseas, interdisciplinary hacks to support you to level up on evaluation, and awesome tips and tools to uplift your everyday work with young people.
