In New Zealand our focus is on supporting social and economic inclusion for newcomers including refugees and migrants. We also work with former refugees to improve leadership capacity and representation.
Community Refugee Sponsorship Programme
The Community Refugee Sponsorship Programme enables all New Zealanders to welcome refugees to Aotearoa. The programme supports organisations and community groups to directly engage in refugee resettlement by committing to providing financial, emotional and practical support to help newly arrived refugees integrate into life in Aotearoa New Zealand.
HOST Aotearoa New Zealand is the umbrella organisation for the Community Refugee Sponsorship (CORS) Programme.

Step into your future & entering the Kiwi Workforce
Job preparation workshops are designed to help former refugees to familiarise with employment and the job market in New Zealand. The programme consists of four half-day sessions incorporating writing a professional CV and cover letter, job interviews, workplace communication, NZ working style and Kiwi culture.
Workforce DIversity and Inclusion
We work with employers in NZ to foster better inclusion of migrant job seekers including events and training that bring together employers and migrant job seekers.
Global Talent Internship Programme
The Global Talent Internship Programme provides former refugees with practical work experience and local referees through 1-3 months internship placements. The programme supports participants to build networks and experience to connect them with job opportunities and educates employers about the business case for employing people from a refugee background.
Former refugee Voice
We work closely with our partner Voice of Aroha to promote the views and contributions of former refugee youth and to promote diversity and inclusion in Aotearoa.
