Hire a LSV graduate?

LSV graduates: 

  • are motivated 
  • are self-disciplined 
  • value teamwork, and 
  • have respect for others. 

Young people volunteer to take part in LSV. They learn new skills and get to know more about who they are, what they want to do and what it takes to get there. 

When they graduate, they’re ready to work, learn and want to make a positive contribution to your business. As an employer you’ll be supporting LSV graduates and your community. 

What is Connected?

Connected is a service to help New Zealanders connect to the wide range of Employment, Education and Training supports and advice available through government agencies.

Connected includes a website, phoneline and face-to-face service to help people access support and see the full range of assistance that’s available across government.

The service will help a wide range of New Zealanders find the advice and support they need, including businesses, people looking for help to find a job or who are worried about keeping the one they have, and those looking for education and training advice and opportunities.

Connected is an all-of-government service led by the Ministry of Social Development.
