20+20 Project is a legacy of Project O.


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. This Project O initiative was piloted in North West Tasmania in 2016 – 2017. It assists young people 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 set out to augment this at a local level. Young people need to change, however the community needs to change with them.

20+20 Project provided 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.

Young women in the community of Wynyard were mentored to pursue their aspirations, enhance their abilities and self-entrepreneur their pathways towards employment, in ways that made a positive difference in their community. Now in the year 2020, these highly skilled, engaged young women are 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.

20+20 Project was funded by the Commonwealth Department of Employment through the Empowering Youth Initiatives Program.
