Pathways to Employment 14 - 15

Young Pacific Island and Maori people are over represented in the youth justice sector. (15-20% of all Youth Justice referrals in Hume/Moreland region are Maori & Pacific Islanders). This program is for 16-25 year olds of Pacific Island and Maori descent and who are disengaged (or disengaging) from education and/or unemployed.  The aim is to equip participants with the tools and skills to enhance their employment opportunities and empower them towards positive social behaviour within their communities. The program also will provide an opportunity for the participants’ families to be involved in their educational and employment journeys.

This program was also supported by our Crowdfunding incentive.
