Share your story and help broaden horizons for children and young people


Your story could inspire a world of opportunity

Inspiring the Future is an exciting new programme that’s coming soon to schools across New Zealand – including schools in our community.

At an Inspiring the Future event, young people hear from volunteers from their own communities, learn about different jobs and why people love doing them, as well as how those people got started in their careers.

Inspiring the Future can be a powerful experience that can broaden young people’s horizons and give them a strong sense of the possibilities.

Showcase your job and your industry

If you volunteer to take part in an Inspiring the Future event, you can help to showcase your job and your industry to the community.

You can read a step by step guide to volunteering at an Inspiring the Future event here.

No matter what your role is or the journey you took to get there, if you enjoy what you do you’ll be seen as a role model who is helping young people to understand the world of opportunity that awaits them.

Volunteer to be a role model

If they don’t hear stories like yours, our young people might never know how many possibilities are available to them.
