The Hawke’s Bay Youth Futures Trust aims to provide leadership, strategic direction and a co-ordinated response to youth employment and training across the Hawke’s Bay. The Trust also facilitates engagement and co-ordinates with key stakeholders including young people, schools, service providers, training/education providers, iwi and employers.
Founded in 2012, the Hawke’s Bay Youth Futures Trust was formed with the vision to achieve the goal of 100% of Hawke’s Bay youth (17 - 24 years of age) in employment, training or education. The trust is supported administratively by Hastings District Council staff.
Hawke’s Bay has one of the highest NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training) rates in the country, a situation recognised both locally and by central government. In 2012, the issue prompted the formation of the Hawke’s Bay Youth Futures Trust, the purpose of which was to have all young people aged 16 to 24 in the region employed or in education or training, with a particular emphasis on those in extra need of a helping hand. Since that time the trust has guided and supported efforts in this area, which along with central government funding support through He Poutama Rangatahi, has resulted in the establishment of programmes and pathways for our local young people.

The scholarship was set up on 2021 in memory of Annie Aranui who was the Ministry of Social Development Regional Commissioner for Hawke’s Bay and Tairawhiti. Annie served in the public sector for more than 36 years and her service was recognised with the New Zealand Public Service Medal in 2020.
Annie started her career in the public sector as a Māori Cadet with the NZ Employment Service. From there, she held leadership positions throughout the country including that of National Welfare Reform Change Manager and finally Regional Commissioner East Coast when she passed away in March 2021.
Annie’s approach as a leader centred around making a positive difference for our mokopuna. She achieved this using an inclusive style of leadership, strong values-based approach and determination to deliver outcomes for some of our most disadvantaged people.
Annie excelled in growing and developing great people and she put some of MSD’s best into other organisations. Annie was a champion of cadetships, internships and pathways for rangatahi and mana wahine.
