Young Workers Resource Centre



The Young Workers' Resource Centre (YWRC) is dedicated to supporting rangitahi through meaningful employment experiences through employment education workshops.

Founded on 2nd September 1993, our primary objective is to provide education, information and assistance to young people about workplace issues. Our vision is for young people to be empowered in the workplace in a way that enhances well-being, fosters understanding and creates positive change in workplace relationships.

  • Health and Safety
  • Workplace Unions
The YWRC also visits high schools, private training establishments and other community sites to provide some or all of the following: a range of workshops on employment rights and obligations; resources and additional information; and a referral service. We also deliver workshops on employment-related unit standards under NZQA. Our service area encompasses the greater Waikato, King Country, Bay of Plenty and Coromandel regions.

And of course... We get by with a little help from our friends:
