yourtown welcomes new funding boost to long-term unemployed young people
Ms Adams said, “yourtown will utilise the funding to ease the obstacles of long-term unemployment by increasing yourtown’s capacity to meet increased demand for their service offerings.
“The benefits provided by gaining new skills and experience really has a powerful ripple effect, positively impacting the lives of young people, their families, friends, neighbourhoods and the wider community. We remain young people-centric in everything we do,” said Ms Adams.
“Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, young people aged 15-24 were already disproportionately adversely affected in the labour market when compared to other age groups,” Ms Adams concluded.
yourtown is a charitable organisation, funded primarily by the community, that powers a range of service offerings to help children and young people realise they have the ability to tackle whatever life throws at them.
