About Us

To achieve the wonderful work they do, the YWRC is made up a committee of 10 volunteers and two paid, full-time staff members:


The Centre can offer expert advice and support on:

  •  Employment Agreements
  • Minimum Legal Requirements (including Minimum Rights and Employment Legislation)
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Discrimination (Human Rights)
  • Health and Safety
  • Workplace Unions

The YWRC 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.

The Young Workers Resource Centre are also proud Living Wage Employers.
