Hi Reach Out Community
I stumbled across Reach Out on a web search as I have been trying to understand how to make the young people I look after more employable. I've been involved with a range of social enterprises but have been in a season where I am working directly 1-1 (gone right to the messy source) in an effort to understand their challenges and obstacles. While the guys I look after are high functioning, I'm surprised that the leap to employment is so difficult in a high demand employment season. I must say I am a little underwhelmed by the employment agencies. So I am working on how to find remedies and strategies for my young people while listening to the challenges other parents and carer's face. Reach out seemed like a good space to listen and share.

Thanks for reaching out for some support with this. So we can better understand what kind of support you are looking for, I'm wondering if you are the parent or primary carer for these young people? Or is this something you support young people with as part of your job?
We have quite a few articles on work, finances and the future that might be a useful read for you in the meantime.

It looks like you’re visiting us from a country other than Australia.
We are an Australian service and think you’d benefit more from looking up a similar service in your country.
You are welcome to look around the forums, but please don’t make an account or post, as we can’t offer you the help you may need.
Before you go ahead and post, you should know that we remove non-Australian accounts – not because we don’t want to help or connect with you, but because we may not be able to provide you with the service that you require.
