New Zealand needs more young people on Boards, want to be one of them?

Millennials are the largest segment in New Zealand and currently make up half the working population. The way we learn, communicate, transact and live is very different from our parents and grandparents.


Despite the importance of young people’s contribution to society, the average age of directors in NZ is around 60 and overall the age of board directors is trending up.


Working with young board members allows for boards to keep in touch with a broader range of audiences and have the diversity of thought to genuinely view systems and decisions with fresh eyes. 

We are developing a group of young people (35 and under) who are interested in developing their Board skills and Board positions. Fill out the form below to join this group and keep up to date with upcoming opportunities.

We are looking for two people to join our Social Change Collective (SCC) Committee!

The Event Manager will be responsible for organising one event each year on a social or environmental issue of their choice. This usually involves around two months of preparation followed by one month of follow-through on the monitoring of actions. The Event Manager will have a buddy to assist.

The Community Co-ordinator will join the other two Trustees and will be responsible for ensuring the Collective is meeting the needs of the Wellington community and connecting with like-minded organisations. The Co-ordinator will also have responsibility for managing relationships with the three-member Advisory Board.
