CEO Connect/Youth2Work Project

The CEO Connect/Youth2Work project is an initiative of Regional Development Australia Adelaide Hills, Fleurieu and Kangaroo Island (RDA), the Industry Leaders Group and supported through WorkReady by the Government of South Australia. 

The project will initially be conducted over 12 months supporting young jobseekers aged   17 to 24 (and not enrolled in secondary education) and deliver a combination of accredited training, individual case management, structured mentoring and job placement support. The project has been developed in response to demand from local businesses and the Industry Leaders Group (ILG) for a service to facilitate young people and businesses to collaborate towards a positive employment outcome. Not only does the project support jobseekers, it supports businesses who employ young workers that work limited hours.  Eligible 17-24 aged workers have the opportunity to upskill or apply for training. To ensure its continued success, the project will have a focus on business mentoring supported by case management and training as identified key elements in the success of previous Y2W projects. 

An important element of the program will include senior personnel from local businesses mentoring young people. This will enable young people to meet and discuss future opportunities and gain a better understanding of employer expectations directly from local business leaders and will also provide potential employers with the opportunity to connect with prospective employees.
