North Central LLEN - Castlemaine
Youth Take Over will address the problems young people face entering the labour market after leaving school in the Loddon Campaspe region.
Youth research shows young people need a supportive eco-system that can address all the barriers they face and help generate local solutions that attach them to pathways and jobs.
Research shows supportive ecosystems need to be:
local and flexible (place based) driven by local assessment of the needs and interests of young people
co-designed with industry and services (human, skills/training, jobs services, etc), to create packages of coordinated activity and system reform
sustained over time.
The project will support young people who may find themselves unemployed in their first year out of school, to build pathways to employment in an industry that interests them (and for that industry to in turn meet and learn from young people).
