Jobs Victoria’s $10.8 million Community Revitalisation program offers local communities across metropolitan and regional Victoria support to develop new pathways to employment for people facing entrenched barriers to meaningful, ongoing work.
Community Revitalisation is a place-based approach that involves the community as active participants in co-defining issues and co-designing and delivering solutions.
Community Revitalisation is currently running in:
- Broadmeadows, Campbellfield and Meadow Heights in Melbourne’s north
The Hume project is delivering employment-focused initiatives to improve access to the labour market, secure employment and grow inclusive communities.
The following Community Revitalisation initiatives are underway in Broadmeadows, Campbellfield and Meadow Heights.
Employment readiness and careers counselling
This is an intensive, person-centred approach using the Employment Readiness Scale, targeted career development strategies and professional careers guidance to assess levels of work readiness and employability.
Passport to Work
Passport to Work aims to increase the level of productivity and emotional resilience of local jobseekers over a three to four-month period so that they are ready to move into meaningful, ongoing work. The program is delivering a tailored program to 80 jobseekers selected by Council’s Local Jobs for Local People team.
The Imagineering program is delivered through local schools and engages parents, students and their families with the possibilities of meaningful, ongoing work. Imagineering encourages an entrepreneurship style curriculum for all primary school aged children to help teach creative thinking and start developing resilience while building business skills.
