What is the jobs program?
We know from experience that young people leaving the care system have so much potential and so much to offer employers. We have been building a world class jobs program which prepares our care leavers for the world of work.
Our evidence is that when care leavers are matched with the right employers and given the right concrete resources such as housing, health and welbeing, childcare, travel, clothes and ID along with the soft skills such as critical thinking, conflict resolution, appropriate communication, cooking, cleaning and an ability to form relationships then care leavers thrive.
We want to prove to the business world that our kids are worth taking a chance on, that they will do better than their peers and be better employees.
