Is this you?  

You are a born networker and love being out and about. You have demonstrated business development and promotional skills to secure new and repeat business. You can connect with young people and get them excited about employment and training.

Our frontline warriors and change makers are all here because we genuinely want to break the cycle of disadvantage, and we want you to want that too!
