The Foundation exists today thanks to the dedication of Malcolm Cameron. Malcolm began working with young unemployed people in 1985. His Vision was for them to recognise and enjoy the talents he saw in them all.
The Foundation is a community based organisation. We value people and ideas and look to maintain a highly creative, innovative and entrepreneurial capital balance. We know it’s all about vision, harmony and involvement. These values are constant because of the Foundation’s independence we are able to change quickly to remain innovative.
We are committed to being frugal by maintaining low overheads and high involvement with those who need us. We have a policy which allows us to be on the road, that’s where you will find us.
The 4ME program is all about connecting the community. We do this by using currently technology (128GB) IPADS, being responsive to all the need within our communities. Employers and Education providers tell us that too many young people leave school not knowing where they are headed. It is estimated that a significant percentage of school leavers do not have a plan for their future beyond finding a job. Many of these end up as social statistics. For over 20 years we have been working with youth to help them understand the process of career planning. We understand how today’s kids learn and we provide them with the tools that even the most vulnerable can use to maximize their chances and reach their full potential.
Our Objective – To bring together families, employers, and education providers to build stronger more cohesive communities. By helping all New Zealanders realize their dreams through the discovery of real employment opportunities.
Our Rational – We are a non-profit trust determined to help turn lives around. We are the only people using the same technology the kids use to get them engaged in employment opportunities.
Our Proposal – We will visit schools and communities annually over the next three years, to give local kids and their families’ access to over 350 snap shots of employment and community.
How will it Work – 3 Vans presenting for 3 years covering all New Zealand through a minimum of 2 visits per area. Visits include students from level 7 and above. We make full use of social media.
WE SET UP IN 3 MINUTES BUT THE RESULTS CAN LAST A LIFETIME.
