Big hART’s 20+20 Project backs rural young people to succeed in a transitioning employment market place, by learning how to make work happen for themselves. The project assists them to define their aspirations, match these with skills, develop the habits of work, explore unusual employment pathways and seize opportunities to self-entrepreneur.
The future of employment is changing forever, and the pressure on at-risk young people to fail can be intense. 20+20 Project refuses to leave these young people behind. Young people need to change, however the community needs to change with them.
20+20 Project provides young people with new skills, networks and opportunities, while at the same time working to assist the community to support the aspirations of their young people – in short, generational change.
Each year for the next five years, 20 young women in the community of Wynyard will be mentored to assist them to pursue their aspirations, enhance their abilities and self-entrepreneur their pathways towards employment, in ways that make a positive difference in their community. That means by the year 2020, one hundred highly skilled, engaged young women will be making a difference, changing attitudes, creating opportunities for others, forging new employment pathways and working for generational change on issues such as family violence in their community.
