If you know someone who has left school and can’t get work experience because employers don’t have the right insurance, this could be your answer.
…the State Government will provide funding of $440,000 to Volunteering WA over three years, to deliver the Volunteering: A Pathway to Job Readiness program.
The program will help address this by supporting young people aged between 15 and 24 years to engage in volunteering to build the skills, knowledge, and confidence they need to become workplace ready.
