PARTICIPANTS at JobTrainWA Youth Paths Program based in Midland are giving back to the community by making care packs for people in need.

Carepacks4U management team spokesperson Mitchell Evans said they were happy the cause was being supported by local businesses.

“The packs consist of a handmade info booklet, sanitary items, canned food, dog food for pets and anything else we can get donated,” he said.

“We have also designed a ‘Need Employees’ board for our group so we can put up our cover letters for potential employers to stop and see if a member from our group fits the criteria for a job that may be available.”

Peedac JobTrainWA trainer Scott Harvey said the program helped participants gain real-world experience as they forged a pathway into the workforce.

“These courses have the ability to change lives,” he said.

“We currently have 30 participants and in one day they stated it’s so great to be believed in and they where ready to change their lives but also to get work to better their lives.

“The JobTrainWA Paths program are run in Clarkson, Joondalup, Mirrabooka, Midland, Cannington, Armadale , Morley so if you want to change come to the course with JobTrainWA – it works.”
