Connecting people with employment
The Community Employment Connectors program provides culturally responsive and individualised support to help young job seekers navigate and connect with employment and training.
This program is open to:
- young people aged 16-25 from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds who face barriers to employment and training pathways
- adults from CALD backgrounds who face barriers to securing sustainable employment.
We deliver the Community Employment Connectors program within the City of Greater Dandenong and City of Casey, regions that are well known for their rich cultural and linguistic diversity. These regions are also highly disadvantaged with high unemployment rates, especially for young people.
SECL and our partner, Wellsprings for Women, have established and chaired the Community Employment Connector Community of Practice sharing learnings, achievements, challenges and ideas across Victoria. The Community of Practice meets monthly in a virtual meeting with 11 organisations.
