Did you know it takes almost 5 years for the average young Australian to secure full time work?

In an effort to support young people in the City of Boroondara, we've developed a pilot program with Ripple’s Career Lab-external site that aims to build practical skills to land a job.

From mid-October, 12 young people aged 18 to 25 years old from Boroondara will take part in the new program.  

It includes 5 weekly online sessions where participants will:

  • learn practical skills
  • meet industry experts 
  • build their network to accelerate their careers. 

It also includes expert guest speakers who will share their lessons, advice, fails and wins. 

Guest speakers include:

  • Dr Norman Swan, health broadcaster with the ABC
  • Ttobie Arowobusoye, leader of sustainability and social impact at 4Pines Brewing Company
  • Emma Grover, leader of community building for over 55 million users of Canva.
