Bridging the Gap: helping young people confidently step up to employment
Funds will help the 'Bridging the Gap' project which focus on pre-employment preparation and training for young people experiencing multiple barriers to employment.
Whitelion supports young people being released back into the community after leaving youth justice, child protection and out-of-home care systems. The project will target young people from a range of backgrounds and regions who are disconnected from their community to prepare them for employment. Practical skills like resume building, online job search tools and personal presentation will be covered to increase confidence and self-esteem.
