Green Jobs for Lismore youth
Our second NGJC Lismore team is due to start on Monday, August 9.
NGJC, a federally funded program that commenced in January, provides local people (aged 17-24) with the opportunity to gain accredited training and practical work experience in conservation and land management.
“This program provides the opportunity to participate in community projects that result in the real skills, training, qualifications and work experience that employers are looking for but that can be difficult to attain”, EnviTE co-ordinator Bill Sansom said.
“It is an ideal launching ramp for further employment and studies in natural area management, bush regeneration, environmental restoration, light construction and landscaping.”
The program is open to unemployed 17-24 year olds and is for a period of six months. Nationally accredited training will be given with qualifications in First Aid and Certificate II in Conservation and Land Management.
There is an information session tomorrow at the EnviTE Lismore office. Find out more by visiting: www.envite.org.au or calling our office 6621 9588.
