Helping turn the tide on unemployment and unskilled labour in Australia. Mentoring the current and future working people of Australia to make for a better, stronger and more skilled country.

What We’re About


The Problem

Australian unemployment as of August 2016 was sitting at a three year low of 5.6%.

We are losing thousands of jobs a month!

The predicament for many Australians is that as one industry closes so do the opportunities to find work in fields they are skilled in.


Our Goal

Our Aim is to help reduce the unemployment rate in Australia through providing work experienced opportunities to people to create a more skilled workforce for businesses to employ.

Through providing such services as Participation Programs, Mentorship Programs and Community Engagement Programs to help achieve our goal for this country.


The Mission

Our mission is to help turn the tide on the unemployment rate in Australia and help as many Australians earn new skills to then return to the workforce.

When one industry closes so do the opportunities to find work.

We want to change that.
