Independent research shows getting a first Australian job significantly increases a person’s likelihood of future employability. With a lack of appropriate training, young refugee women in particular, struggle to acquire the skills and experience to help secure their future.
This new migrant young women’s retail training project will employ 4 young Western Sydney refugee women (aged 18-28) for a fixed-period of 6-months to learn invaluable customer-service and work-skills at The Social Outfit in Newtown.
Designed to build both the social and economic participation of refugee young women, this paid work-experience, retail training pilot will help transition participants into future ongoing work.
