Empowering YOUth Initiatives in your state/territory

Empowering YOUth Initiatives are operating across Australia. Initiatives range from providing support through outdoor adventure therapy, online industry mentor support, BMX riding workshops and creating art/craft products to sell.

Job seekers on income support payments must meet their Mutual Obligation Requirements to receive their income support payment. Participation in Empowering YOUth Initiatives may contribute towards these requirements (this may include job seekers within an Annual Activity Requirement or Early School Leavers participation in Activities). More information can be found in the Empowering YOUth Initiatives Guideline.
