Youth at Work Mentor SSI Youth@Work mentors support young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds to adapt to the workplace and stay in work in Australia.

The program aims to enhance the career outcomes of participants who often find it difficult to secure long term employment in Australia because of language and cultural barriers.

Mentors connect with participants via phone, email, text or in person for up to six months to help young people set the foundations for their career goals.

Volunteer Opportunities

English classThe Community Hubs Program is based in primary schools. It aims to support migrant and refugee families (including children 0 to 6 years of age) by offering meaningful social activities, as well as access to support services, including local education, health, community and settlement services.

The Hub English Conversation groups have been developed for parents, grandparents and other community members to attend and practise their conversational English. English practice assistants will work alongside English practice facilitator/s and their Community Hub Leader during the English Conversation sessions.

English practice assistants are required to select a school within Bankstown, Cumberland, Parramatta, Blacktown and Fairfield, and must be committed to regular attendance of two sessions per fortnight. Times and days will vary across hubs and are only held during school term.
