No young person must be allowed to leave school to nothing—no job, no further training, no hope. The Salvation Army is issuing this challenge to the New Zealand community in a report titled ‘What Next?’, focused on the employment needs of 15- to 24-year-olds.

The Salvation Army, in issuing its challenge to Government, educators and industries, calls for more meaningful training and employment opportunities for New Zealand young people—especially those from poorer communities.

‘Young people doing nothing is a future New Zealanders surely cannot casually accept,’ says report author Alan Johnson, senior policy analyst with The Salvation Army's Social Policy and Parliamentary Unit.
