Welcome to the Mayors Taskforce For Jobs
OUR VISION IS THAT ALL YOUNG PEOPLE UNDER 25 BE ENGAGED IN APPROPRIATE EDUCATION, TRAINING, WORK OR POSITIVE ACTIVITIES IN THEIR COMMUNITIES.
What is the Mayors Taskforce For Jobs?
The Mayors Taskforce For Jobs is a nationwide network of New Zealand’s Mayors, working together towards the vision of all young people under 25 being engaged in appropriate education, training, work or other positive activity in their communities.
MTFJ started in 2000 with just seven Mayors, and now has a membership of all the country’s sixty-six Mayors. The Core Group within MTFJ holds quarterly meetings in Wellington with the Ministers and officials from government departments and holds responsibility for the overall vision, direction, leadership and strategic focus of MTFJ. Hon Steven Joyce is the lead Minister for MTFJ.
MTFJ has a national Youth to Work Strategy that encourages community ownership and Mayoral leadership in the effort to help youth into employment.
