Call for young people ages 14-16 to join the 2023 Ministerial Youth Advisory Group

Applications are open from 10 – 26 February 2023.

The Ministerial Youth Advisory Group (YAG) is a platform for rangatahi to share their perspectives on education to help inform how we work and improve the education system. 

We have three spots open and we’re looking for rangatahi aged 14-16 to join the current YAG members this year. We welcome applications from all backgrounds and communities across Aotearoa New Zealand. It’s important that we have a diverse range of young people in YAG to reflect the different experiences of youth in Aotearoa.
