Working with Youth Connect for education and employment

 


It was great to be with Shadow Minister for Youth, Training, Skills and Apprenticeships, Steph Ryan MP and with Youth Connect CEO, Danny Schwarz in Bentleigh this week.

Youth Connect is a non-profit, community focused organisation that offers assistance to young people, parents, the community, schools, education providers, employers and industry in the south eastern suburbs of Melbourne. More than 1000 young people have received flexible and specific support during the last five years.


Youth Connect has developed a wide range of programs and services including the significantly successful Right Step Youth Diversion Program in Moorabbin and Frankston. Youth Connect worked closely with the former Victorian Attorney General, Robert Clark MP and the Department of Justice with a view that all young people should have access to diversion where appropriate.

It was as a result of this work that the former Coalition Government provided the Children's Court with funding to develop a larger scale pilot program and as a result, young people will get access to vital intervention that has not previously been part of the Youth Justice System.

Congratulations to Danny Schwarz for all his hard work on school to work pathways in the south eastern region.
