from the ground up
Our vision is to create a world in which all refugees and migrants feel supported and be given opportunities to thrive in their new homes.
We want every single person to be empowered by their heritage – to bring their authentic selves to work everyday.
We provide a platform that connects secondary school students of refugee and immigrant backgrounds aged 15 and above to employers ranging from start-ups to larger and more established organisations in various industries.
What does the data say?
Currently 3,500-4,000 refugees enter Victoria every year with 50% being under 19 years of age, much higher than the 25% in the Victorian population.
Recently-arrived migrants have a higher unemployment rate (9.2%) than those who have lived in Australia for some years (3.3%)
Lack of Work Experience
94% of migrants struggling to find work identified a lack of Australian work experience as the primary reason.
Higher Level of Poverty
Young refugees are more likely to live in poverty than Victorian children and young people overall – 50.1% compared to 14.3%
