Your future right here

Youth Service West 

Based in West Auckland, Youth Service West (YSW) works with local young people and young parents to find the best options for education, training or work-based learning that will help them build their skills and find suitable employment. 

We work alongside young people, as their personal advisors, giving them the support they need to achieve qualifications (including NCEA Level 2), and support them towards achieving financial independence. 

YSW works with two specific groups of young people:

  • Young people aged 16-18 who are not in education, training or work-based learning to support them into employment, training and/or education.
  • Young people 16-18 and young parents 16-20 who are receiving government financial assistance to support them in meeting their obligations for receiving support.

To get the registration process started, download the YSW registration form or an agency referral form.

Youth Service West is also home to the Ka Awatea Transition Service, which helps young people 15 and over from across Auckland making the transition from care to independence.
