Engage young people in your workplace – Regional Development Australia Mid North Coast NSW

Calling on employers to contribute as little as 1 hour per year to help youth employability
RDA Mid North Coast has partnered with Inspiring the Future to connect employers with opportunities to guide, inspire, mentor and employ young people in our region. This is a practical attempt to address some of the foundation factors that contribute to high youth unemployment in our region. Recent UK research has shown that a young person who has four or more encounters with an employer whilst at school is 86% less likely to be unemployed or not in further education or training and can earn 22% more during their career (Education and Employers Taskforce 2017). http://rdamnc.org.au/engage-young-people-workplace/
