Tailored assistance to help young people at risk of long-term unemployment
Smart Skilled & Hired - Youth Employment Program St Marys
The Smart Skilled & Hired Youth Employment Program helps young people in St Marys (NSW) gain the skills and experience to improve their long-term job prospects.
This is a voluntary program to help young people overcome barriers to employment for young people aged 15-24 in St Marys who are not in education, training or work, and are most at risk of long-term unemployment and those who are underemployed.
This includes practical support in the form of education, training and mentoring, to addressing barriers such as their health, stable accommodation and the need for suitable clothes, tools and equipment for work.
Our team provides on-going practical support to both the young person, their employer and family to help them increase their working hours and stay in a job.
