The future looks bright for the Search and Rescue and Emergency Management volunteer workforce
YSAR is the youth development training conduit for Search and Rescue and Emergency Management training in New Zealand.
Over the last 4 years, we have been building capacity to scale YSAR into other regions across NZ. The programme combines a unique blend of Outdoor Education, Search and Rescue and Emergency Management skills, and Leadership and Management training through an exciting authentic, and blended approach. The three-year training programme fits well alongside the yr11 – yr13 secondary school calendar. We partner with an array of local emergency response groups and technology partners to enable students to become the next generation of community volunteers and employees.
If you are interested in starting a group within your area we have created a webpage with information on how to do so. Check out how to start a new branch HERE
