We are into Autumn already; can you believe how quickly our year is already flying by? I hope you enjoyed a restful Easter break, spending time with family, relaxing or listening to some wonderful Jazz music for all those based here in the beautiful Bay of Plenty.
The Momenta team is in full swing, particularly in our Springboard programme where we are working with young people in their last year of school, planning what comes next for them in 2022.
We are busy expanding too and have recently recruited for a new Community Connector. We look forward to announcing our new team member to you very soon.
You may have seen the fantastic “The Hiring Chain” video sung by Sting, which has made the rounds on social media lately. It is a great reminder that people with intellectual disabilities can do the job!! Although one in five working-age people in New Zealand has some form of disability, most have little or no barrier to working in some kind of paid employment given the right support.
Momenta is always looking to partner with employers in providing work experience for some of our young and talented people. Please get in touch with us if you want to talk more about how you can provide an opportunity for someone to achieve such an important valued role!
