Youth unemployment in Australia is twice that of the rest of the population*. Our mission is to reduce youth unemployment by empowering young people with meaningful skills and jobs to ignite their potential. We aim to support young people and empower youth with a combination of practical life skills and technical skills that will assist them in real working scenarios.

As a society, it’s important that we tackle the crucial issue of how to reduce unemployment; not only for young people but for all people. As an employer, you have the power to support individuals by creating opportunities to get more people into a meaningful career.

Tamara’s Story

Tamara Rodionov
WorkVentures/Uniting Traineeship Graduate
After leaving school, Tamara found it challenging to secure work until she joined the WorkVentures KickStart program.
Tamara thrived throughout the program, slowly building up the confidence she needed in the workplace, while gaining experience across different business divisions. The guidance and support Tamara received while in the program helped her realise her true potential and understand that she could contribute real value to an employer.
After KickStart, Tamara was selected for a business Traineeship with host employer Uniting and now holds a Certificate III in Business.
