Y2 Employment & Education


Are you living between Nukuhou North to Whangaparaoa, we welcome youth of all nationalities and cultures.
This program is delivered under Te Pou Oranga O Whakatōhea who is a subsidiary of the Whakatōhea Māori Trust Board.

The Y2 program is flexible to student’s numeracy and literacy needs and is tailor made accordingly.

Commuters are provided to students engaged in online study but are able to participate in group activities and presentations.

Youth require active planning towards their intended career pathway. The Y2 program will enable students to develop building blocks to reach their goals, learn life skills and celebrate success on their own terms.

All our staff endeavour to assist and empower each individual and whānau to gain qualifications, experience, networks and contacts. Passion and drive combined will put our people our youth in a pivotal position to unleash their potential that needs to be activated.
