A specialised employment program for young Indigenous offenders, or youth who are 'at risk', is looking for participants in the Melbourne metropolitan area.
The program, coordinated by PVS Indigenous (a branch of PVS Workfind) and the Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA), supports youth aged 16-25 years who have had, or are at risk of, contact with the justice system. The program is run in partnership with the YMCA Bridge project, and offers mentoring, accredited work readiness training, and pre and post work placement support to participants.
The program's coordinator, Mathew Tanner, says that they are hoping to procure 20 employment opportunities for the Indigenous youths who participate, as well as provide 25 work readiness training placements. Interested applicants who live in the inner and outer metropolitan suburbs of Melbourne are encouraged to contact Mr Turner for further information.
