Multicultural Youth Tasmania (MYT), a program of Migrant Resource Centre Tasmania (MRC Tas), is excited to announce the launch of the ‘Multicultural Youth (MY) Step into Work’ program for 2019.
MY Step into Work offers work experience opportunities that support young people to develop skills in their chosen career.
Local businesses are invited to participate in MY Step into Work, offering participants two weeks of work experience during July 6th – 21st 2019. As a business participant you will also be invited to attend the MY Step Into Work networking event and participant graduation in September, 2019.
MY Step into Work aims to increase practical workplace knowledge, skills and abilities of participants from refugee and migrant backgrounds aged 17-25 years, building their work readiness through work experience, strengthening networks, and personal employment pathway planning. MY Step into Work is funded by the Scanlon Foundation.
Last year MY Step Into Work supported 11 participants in work placement across 7 businesses.
“Our customers loved being welcomed by Kwot’s smiling face and our workers appreciated that we, as a business, were helping his transition into work. The cultural exchange of having Kwot in our workplace was an unexpected bonus which formed friendships and enriched our workplace as a whole.” – Resource Work Cooperative
