What is HeyFuture!?

The Mind Lab’s HeyFuture! programme is a 2-week programme to establish work-ready skills and real-life job opportunities for 18-22 year olds who haven’t found their place in the world… yet.

A range of speakers, workshops and a real-life industry project will build skills, confidence and real-life experience across a range of areas including problem-solving collaboration, creativity, curiosity, perseverance and ‘getting stuff done’.

Participants will get the opportunity to meet people from amazing NZ and international companies who are looking to hire work-ready young people – while tackling some of the big lofty questions of today. After two weeks, you’ll be set with a bunch of new skills, connections and a clear idea about what to do next.
