Almost one in five young people in Australia are long-term unemployed and the gap between digitally included and excluded Australians is substantial and growing*.

WorkVentures plays a vital role in creating social inclusion in Australia for individuals and their communities.
By measuring the social impact created through our work and programs, we are better equipped to ensure the success of our endeavours and continue to build and improve.

Social Inclusion for Young People

Social inclusion for young people

We know that having twenty-first century skills and relevant work experience are the key to ongoing full-time employment for young people.

We support young people by providing work experience, traineeships and jobs within our social enterprise and with other like-minded not-for-profit, government and corporate partners.

By providing young people with opportunities to gain tangible skills and become job-ready in a safe and nurturing environment, we encourage them to ignite their potential and, as a result, help create vibrant, inclusive communities.
Sustainable IT Solutions

Reducing the digital divide with sustainable IT solutions

The digital divide in Australia is deepening. The key to closing the gap and creating more socially inclusive communities is creating access to affordable, internet connected technology, and enabling people with the skills to use it.
We provide affordable, reliable computers to individuals and non-profits who otherwise could not access or afford this technology. Computers are donated by our partners and restored to an as-new condition, giving new life to technology and creating environmentally-sustainable IT solutions.
All technology includes personalised support, ensuring people are empowered with the confidence to use technology to its full potential.
