Helping young people get into employment
Are you looking to make a positive change in your life? We can help you!
Evolve Housing is delivering the YELL (Youth Employment Local Linker) program to help young people in the Miller area gain employment, further their education, access training opportunities or re-engage with high school.
The program is completely voluntary and available to anyone aged 15-24 years old living in the Miller area in south west Sydney, regardless of whether they are currently in social housing or not. It has been designed to support young people who are looking to make a positive change in their life.
Participants have access to a dedicated youth worker who can help them explore their employment and education options and plan goals to help them reach their aspirations. They are also linked up with other support services if appropriate.
Since the program was launched in August 2019, we have worked with 28 participants, 61% of whom are Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander. We have supported seven of these participants into employment and 18 into an accredited course.
We have supported nine participants to complete a Work Development Order, which allowed them to reduce their fines (such as parking or speeding fines) with the State Debt Recovery Office.
We also collaborated with the Rent Choice Youth team to assist four participants into private rental properties using the NSW Government’s Rent Choice subsidy, which covers a substantial part of the rent for up to three years.
Other positive outcomes achieved through the program so far include helping participants with housing, Centrelink applications, getting identification, and acquiring a driver’s license.
If you are looking to make a positive change in your life, We want to help you explore your employment and education options and plan goals to help you reach these aspirations.
