Empowering Youth Initiatives

Eyre Peninsula Journey to Work

Eyre Peninsula (EP) Journey to Work improves the confidence of young Aboriginal people in South Australia and increases their pride in their cultural identity. The initiative connects young people with strong community role models and local employers, and supports them on their education and employment pathway through access to a suite of programs and case management support. Young people also receive assistance to obtain their 100 points of ID and their driver’s licence.

Background to the Empowering YOUth Initiatives

Empowering YOUth Initiatives is an Australian Government measure to test new and innovative approaches to help disadvantaged and vulnerable young people on their pathway to employment. Eyre Peninsula Journey to Work is funded by the Department of Employment until June 2018.

Are you an Aboriginal young person aged between 15-24, and interested in learning more about what job opportunities are available to you on the Eyre Peninsula and how to get them?

We will help you:

  • work with employers to develop new and creative ways of increasing employment opportunities for young Aboriginal people on EP
  • connect you to effective community role models
  • overcome barriers such as juvenile justice, family and health issues
  • gain access to ID and mobility
  • to find employment you enjoy and keep it
