2020 has presented all of us with significant challenges, but as Maxim’s latest research notes, spare a thought for our young people. Researcher Rowan Light’s paper is titled Catching the Tide: New directions for youth NEET policy after COVID-19.

On this podcast, Jeremy and Rowan are joined by Ryan Donaldson, General Manager of Whangarei Youth Space. Together they explore the problem of youth unemployment, how the class of 2020 will be effected long-term by COVID-19, and the importance of community, mentorship and intergenerational pastoral relationships.
