About Work Ready Kāpiti

Work Ready Kāpiti is a not-for-profit, committed to helping 16-25 year olds transition into local employment.

As a joint initiative between The Kāpiti Coast Chamber of Commerce, The Kāpiti Coast District Council and The Youth Employment Strategy Group, Work Ready Kāpiti is in the process of being established legally as foundation. 

The group brings together a range of experience and expertise to build enduring relationships between our youth and Kāpiti employers.

We believe Kāpiti will benefit socially and economically by young employees being work ready and bringing fresh perspectives to our local businesses. We also see this as an opportunity for our local businesses to give these young people a strong foundation for the rest of their working lives.
