Aboriginal youth transitions program for school students
In 2016 AWDCs started the Aboriginal youth transitions program with the aim of increasing the number of Aboriginal youth making a successful transition to further education, training or employment after leaving school.
The program seeks to:
- raise the aspirations of Aboriginal school students in Years 10 to 12;
- ensure that students have completed a career transition plan before leaving school;
- provide access to advice on careers and training options; and
- gain work experience where possible.
The AWDCs will continue to offer support and guidance to young people to help fulfil their career plans after they leave school.
