Pathway to Employment

Education today for change tomorrow

Australia is facing a youth employment crisis.

Accelerated by COVID-19, an economic downturn and a lack of graduate opportunities have created uncertainty and anxiety for their future prospects.

With an economic downturn, comes a slowdown of our collective progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Achieving sustainability, equality and diversity in society requires us to first empower our youth with the knowledge and opportunities to reach their potential. Only then will we see the SDGs become a tangible reality.

How can we harness giving to widen the pathway to employment?

Decent Work & Economic Growth is the goal. Quality Education is the solution.

We are widening the pathway to employment for students while resourcing the not-for-profits in the education space.

Volunteering is a pathway to finding purpose in a career and community. Only by equipping our youth with the knowledge and ability to tackle the world’s greatest challenges can we see a brighter future.
