Youth Services

YES is the only disability information service in New Zealand that focuses on youth with disabilities and learning differences.

All of our projects and programmes have been co-designed and co-delivered with youth leaders within the disability sector, to ensure we are creating the right environment for them and their peers to develop personally and professionally, ultimately allowing them to lead independent, thriving lives.

All of our projects and programmes have been co-created and co-delivered with young people with disabilities and learning differences to ensure we are creating the right environment to develop personally and professionally, ultimately allowing them to lead independent, thriving lives.

Here are some of the exciting projects and programmes we offer:

 

Yes I Can

YES I CAN is a 2-day values workshop for youth with disabilities. They learn about what values resonate with them, how that informs the way they view the world and how they interact with others. 

This workshop is the perfect starting point for personal and professional development.

 

I.DRIVE Learner Licensing Programme

Gaining your Learner License is one of the biggest starter milestones in starting you on your journey towards independence. 

We are now running workshops for young people with disabilities to learn the Road Code in a different, interactive and innovative way. By having our own in-house facilitator, we are able to cater each class to meet each student’s learning needs.

We have 4 classes available throughout the year. See our What’s Happening page for more details and upcoming course dates.
