GIANTS YOUTH EMPLOYMENT PROGRAM

Preparing youth for employment, an intensive 10 session program that provides skills to gain and employment.

Through a partnership with the GIANTS we will offer 100 students in Greater Western Sydney the opportunity to complete an 8-session course in job ready preparation. Each week students will explore topics such as:

  • team building
  • time management
  • communication skills
  • budgeting
  • nutrition
  • career planning
  • interviewing
  • resume development (cv)

It also includes two industry visits, one to the invested partner and one to the GIANTS Training and Admin building. This will provide a real-life job visitation experience and allow youth to make a connection with different industry opportunities.

This Program will allow youth aged 15-17 years to become ready and confident to engage further in employment.
