Qualitative research into the Empowering YOUth Initiatives Program for the Department of Jobs and Small Business

Conducted in 2017 and 2018, the reviews investigated innovative projects that were assisting Indigenous youth, recently arrived refugees and migrants and other young job seekers who were having difficulty finding work.

These reviews included interviews and focus groups with young job seekers, employers, jobactive providers, mentors, community organisations and the staff running the projects. The projects were based in Kiama, Blacktown, Redfern, Parramatta and Adelaide.
