The Office of Social Impact Investment is pleased to announce the launch of the Youth Employment Social Impact Program.
This initiative - established in partnership between the NSW Department of Education and Office of Social Impact Investment - seeks to help address youth unemployment across NSW by providing funding to support young people with multiple or complex barriers to employment to develop work readiness skills, and find and sustain employment.
The Youth Employment Social Impact Program is open to social enterprises and social impact organisations operating in NSW who are currently delivering employment-focused initiatives for young people not in employment, education or training, and are ready to make a larger impact in their communities.
The NSW Government is looking to fund two to four initiatives from a total funding pool of $1.5 million.
