I recently joined the Youth Transitions project as a research assistant over the summer months before I commence my final year of studies in law at Otago University, having already completed a Bachelor of Arts. My involvement in the project has been both an enlightening and inspiring experience.
It is a privilege to share in the life narratives of the inspiring young people who have taken part and offered both honesty and rumination to the project. The imperatives of the Youth Transitions Project are invaluable in the drive to improve and refine New Zealand’s social services and I thoroughly look forward to seeing the ongoing contribution this study will make in the enhancement of our social landscape.
