Job no: 492367
Work type: Permanent Full Time
Location: Mount Druitt

yourtown's mission is "To enable young people, especially those who are marginalised and without voice, to improve their quality of life." We take the time to listen, understand and encourage young people to find their place.
For over 15 years, yourtown has been providing quality employment services throughout Australia in communities facing long-term unemployment. Employment Services at yourtown works persistently to address youth unemployment and its causes, by unpacking the challenges a young person might have and finding the right solution for that young person.
The unprecedented increase in unemployment,
a harsh reality of the COVID19 pandemic has caused a subsequent increase in our caseload size. In order to ensure that we provide as many means as possible for young people to get the support they need, we are expanding Employment Services across yourtown.
