About the Event
You asked, we listened! We’re hosting an information evening next Monday to discuss all things The Young Carer Job Readiness Project. Got any questions about the program? Unsure if you or your loved one is eligible? Think it sounds too good to be true? (…We promise, it’s not!)
Join Little Dreamers Founder and CEO, Maddy, as she unpacks the brand new program – what’s involved, the application process, eligibility requirements, and our exciting calendar of training workshops and events – over this virtual evening information session.
We’ll then open the floor to the audience to ask any questions you might have about the program.
Registrations are free but essential. Register below.
What is The Young Carer Job Readiness Project?
Little Dreamers has teamed up with Holmesglen TAFE and a range of corporate partners to create Australia’s first job readiness program for Young Carers!
The Young Carer Job Readiness Project (YCJRP) is a comprehensive support offering that aims to ensure young people with caring roles have the same access to employment opportunities as their non-caring peers.
Young Carers will access vocational skill development and training opportunities, alongside workplace mentoring, internships and work experience. It’s an opportunity to develop new skills, walk away with reference letters, make new, like minded friends, and be recognised and celebrated through a points-based rewards system!
Who is eligible to participate?
This program is currently available to Young Carers aged 15-25 living in Victoria.
