There are a 100 different ways you can give a young person a head start including structured workplace learning, apprenticeships and traineeship placements, hosting a workplace tour, mentoring, sharing your career story at a local school or giving a young person a job.
We believe the whole community has a role to play in helping young people discover their passions and realise their career dreams.
However, some young people feel disengaged from school and disconnected from their community. We can change this by helping young people find their passions, build confidence and get ‘work ready’.
All young people need industry exposure, experience, mentoring and career development opportunities. That means parents, schools, businesses and the community all working together to give young people a great start.
We are calling on all businesses and community leaders in the Central Ranges region to support our young people by making a pledge.
Together, we can find 100 ways to help young people prepare for their future by successfully transitioning from school to further education, training and employment.
