What is the most important thing in the world? It is people!
Ben Love (pictured) in our Wellington team has been a champion for the Te Aroha programme in sharing his story and life experiences. Like Agoge, the Te Aroha programme is all about people. Their purpose is supporting Work & Income recipients who wish to pursue employment opportunities or further learning. A core component of the programme is the support received from Champions... such as Ben Love - our Wellington Solutions Manager who was recently approached to give a talk!
Ben shared his story, giving a well received talk about his own journey, tips to get into the workforce, and how Agoge live 'people matter.' His time, energy, and inspiration has made a positive contribution to the participants and some great feedback... saying "he is a champion himself. Never give up on yourself."
But it wasn't just great feedback received... Ben's now helped 8 people who completed the programme into work on a regular basis! So awesome!
