The purpose of Young Australian People Inc. is to provide young individuals from the inner city suburbs (residing in public housing) with support regarding employment and personal development. What makes Young Australian People Inc. stand out is that we are run by youth who have overcome the barriers that some of today’s youth face, as well as being in frequent communication with members of the community who are employed in the professional industry.
Our overall mission statement is to contribute towards a decrease of the Australian unemployment rate, whilst also helping produce productive, confident and beneficial employees for Australian businesses.
Members of our target demographic do face obstacles such as
language barriers, struggling with networking, lack of academic qualification, lack of work qualification. These factors are just some of the barriers that these youths must face when it comes to employment. Our services at Young Australian People specialise in helping young individuals overcome these barriers through forming relationships with these individuals, understanding their strengths and how to boost their chances of gaining employment as well as personal development.
