Zeal Wellington: Breaking the Cycle of Youth Unemployment

Zeal Wellington are excited to announce their Relaunch Event: ‘Break The Cycle’.  Join their Launch Party on Thursday 7th of September at 7pm as they unveil their plans to ‘Break the Cycle’ of youth unemployment.

In November 2016, Zeal Wellington were forced to leave its Ghuznee Street facility due to quake risks. Since then, Zeal has continued to support and develop young people through city-wide popups and events. Zeal’s social enterprise cafes Stories and Georgia, which launched in 2015, have also continued to flourish as they train and employ young people into the hospitality industry. 

Meanwhile, they continue to innovate.

Zeal has always been a home and hub of community and creativity for young people, but the Zeal Wellington team have been working hard behind-the-scenes to push their continued commitment to young people into new and exciting territory.

“We believe that young people in New Zealand face a crisis of identity and purpose. Time and time again they have seen that employment can be a catalyst to shift fringe young people from low-confidence and disinterest to self belief and social connectedness.” says James Harris, Zeal Wellington Manager.

With this understanding at the core, they have developed a new and exciting venture, focused on breaking the cycle of youth unemployment. Join them on September 7th at 7pm at their brand new space, Level 1 of the James Smith Building (55 Cuba Street, Wellington), as they unveil their plans to further their commitment to young people and how you too can help ‘Break the Cycle’.
