n Commonwealth Youth and Development - Making the connections : youth unemployment in Australia

Volume 7, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 1727-7140



This article highlights the varied literature and evaluations of youth employment, education and training programmes in Victoria, Australia, and internationally. The aim is to identify the elements of good practice and the success from considering the barrier of employment within a much more holistic context. The best results for young people come from agencies and workers who have relationships with employment or further education providers. Young people depend on strong social safety nets to provide them with opportunities to interact in their community, develop skills and knowledge, and foster strong relationships with key adults outside of school and home, with whom they can establish a robust social bond.
