Upper Hutt City Council presents hi-tech kiosk for youth

The Hutt Valley Youth Survey recently launched at Upper Hutt colleges, identified a lack of targeted activities and awareness of career options as key issues for young people.

In response to this, the Upper Hutt City Library and Community Services is offering young people access at no cost to the brand new Inzone Career Kiosk, located in the Library’s Community Lounge.

The kiosk consists of an interactive touch screen which enables young people to watch videos on a broad range of careers and seek follow-up information from training providers. All content is updated regularly to keep it fresh and interesting. UHCC Community Development Adviser Jessica Setu says “the Careers Kiosk has been identified as a need in our community based on what our local young people have told us.

There is nothing like this in the Hutt Valley or even Wellington, so we’re thrilled to be the first to have this available to guide career decision making”. The kiosk will also provide UHCC with up to date information on current career trends and how Upper Hutt young people can best be assisted to work towards their employment goals.

“The library is open daily from 10am so we encourage everyone to get involved and be inspired by what the kiosk has to offer, it’s free and designed to be user friendly” says Library Manager Debbie Duncan.

Although the kiosk was brought in for young people, anyone can use the kiosk to get careers and training information.

More information about the kiosk can be found by visiting www.inzone.co.nz
