“We’re proud that our anniversary Prize Home Draw has provided a great opportunity for young people to be involved. They have not only been involved in the development of a luxury home package, but also to contributing to the funds raised to the lives of thousands of children and young people across Australia. For many that also includes making a contribution to breaking the cycle of unemployment.
“With youth unemployment rates at 11.96% in Australia, young people are facing massive challenges when looking for a job, including a lack of vocational and non-vocational skills. Our goal is to transition young people into ongoing sustainable employment in the future,” continued Ms Adams.
Brock, a trainee in yourtown’s Social Enterprises program, worked on our beautiful Tallebudgera property. Through his training, Brock has gained experience in a wide variety of trade disciplines.
“I've learned so many different skills. We've done plumbing, concreting, landscaping, just a jack-of-all-trades, really. Not skills for just the particular industries, but skills that can help me get a foot in the door to employment in any industry that could offer me a job in the future,” he said.
“yourtown Prize Homes have played a significant part in creating brighter futures for Brock and thousands of other young people across Australia. It truly is a win-win,” said Ms Adams.
