Breezy empower Tokoroa youth

A growing number of Pacific students around New Zealand are saying “yes” to being involved in the Young Enterprise Scheme (YES) and gaining entrepreneurial skills.
As part of the YES programme, students set up and run a real business, and each YES company creates their product or service and gets to experience what it is like to go to market.
Nationwide, there are 485 Pacific students participating in YES within 92 Pacific companies this year.
In the coming weeks and months, the Ministry for Pacific Peoples (MPP) will support the Pacific companies by showcasing Pacific companies involved in YES.
This will help boost the teams’ profiles and hopefully help turn followers into customers of Pacific companies’ YES products.
Meet Pacific enterprise Breezy from Forest View High School in Tokoroa.
Hailing from the small Waikato community, Breezy has been created to encourage young people in Tokoroa to keep striving high.
This group of entrepreneurs want to make a positive change in their community and are selling t-shirts and hoodies with unique designs to spread a compelling message – that no matter where they come from, they can succeed in the business world.
You can follow Breezy on Instagram: @_team_br33zy_ or on Facebook.
