The Community Services Gateway to Industry Schools Project is a forward thinking approach to promote Community Sector jobs and to ensure an ongoing supply of industry-mentored workforce in the years to come.

While today’s youth will need to be the Community Sectors leaders in the future, are they thinking about this sector when they think of their future career?

With industry involvement, CSGISP will mentor young people for a future workforce that:

  • Better targets by sought-after values and attributes
  • Encourages more diverse recruits (including gender age and culture)
  • Arrives with qualifications completed and funded while still at school
  • Has had experiences and realistic exposure to community services environments

Employer involvement needed now!

As a future employer, being involved in youth attraction allows the sector to influence training and preparation before employment. Getting involved can look different for every employer.

Can you:

  • Employ a young worker or provide work experience placement?
  • Feedback or join a project working group?
  • Be an industry mentor for a local school?
  • Share your career story via Q&A sessions or sector perspectives?
  • Suggest a great young worker as a project ambassadors?
