5 Things You Didn't Know We Do in Tasmania
Did you know we have a variety of services available in Tasmania?
We love our island state, and we're committed to tackling the issues affecting the lives of young people locally.
Jobactive helps young people to get the right skills to find and keep a job. Our youth specialists give young people access to job search tools and training, and help with resumes, job applications and preparation for interviews.
We even help young job seekers approach employers and make sure they have the work clothing, tools and other essential items for starting a new job. And the support doesn't end once they're employed! We also guide and support them and their employer through their first six months of employment.
In partnership with MAX Employment, our Tasmanian jobactive services are located in Bridgewater, Glenorchy, Launceston, Devonport and Burnie.
We run these free interactive sessions in primary school classrooms. Kids Helpline counsellors are able to join classes via video link to talk about the mental health and wellbeing issues kids are facing.
Kids Helpline @ School Wellbeing supported by Bupa is a free early intervention and prevention program available to all primary schools Australia-wide. The program aims to improve student mental health literacy, improve student coping strategies and promote help-seeking behaviours.
And all from the comfort of the digital classroom!
Speaking of which…
"The best thing about this job is I'm learning a variety of trades, the staff give you heaps of help, and I've improved my people skills. yourtown has helped me be a better person."
"Whenever I hit rock bottom, Kids Helpline has always been there for me."
Being part of the local community is at the heart of yourtown.
From Tasmania to Townsville, we work within the community and provide a voice for the community. But none of that would be possible without you.
Your support means we can help children and young people through services like Kids Helpline as well as training and employment services, parent education and specialist accommodation for families. With more than 180,000 young people reaching out to us for help last year, your support allows us to tackle youth unemployment and mental health as well as take on issues like domestic and family violence.
