Each individual receives a custom program tailored to their need and aspirations. We aim to empower you to take charge of your future.

  • Overcoming challenges at work
  • Other activities to support you in developing a rewarding career

Our approach is strength-based and person-centred. Meaning empowered school-leavers have ownership over their progress and outcomes.

Additionally, they aim to give you the support you need in order to successfully achieve and maintain employment.
