Vision Australia, in collaboration with the Empowering Youth Initiative (EYI), launched an exciting national employment skills program for youth, Building Stronger Futures in September 2017.

As the initiative comes to an end Vision Australia will be delivering Building Stronger Futures programs in Queensland, Victoria and New South Wales in January.

These programs will involve a three day face-to-face interactive skills development program, followed by job placement and problem solving assistance for six months. During this time, you will receive:

  • Advice on career pathways and job seeking techniques
  • Cover letter and resume writing advice
  • Addressing employment issues specific to vision impairment
  • Interview skills development and coaching
  • Networking and matching your skills to an employer’s needs

This program may be right for you if:

  • You are blind or have low vision
  • Are between the ages of 15 to 24 inclusive,
  • Have communication skills
  • Willing and motivated to gain employment

Please note: You are still eligible for the program even if you are already involved in Disability Employment Services (DES). This is a grant funded program, and will not affect NDIS funding.

To express your interest in this exciting program, please contact Belinda Wilson:

The first program will take place in Melbourne from mid-September 2017.
