The Youth Partnership
Formerly Southern Sydney Business Education Network (SSBEN)
A better approach to youth employment
It is the vicious cycle that many young people face when transitioning from study to the workforce. A job requires years of experience, while young people haven’t had an opportunity to gain the experience needed.
The Youth Partnership was formed to help young people make the successful transition from school to work or further education. Through our ongoing relationships with employers across Sydney, we coordinate work placements for students studying Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses as part of their HSC.
Our programs help students prepare to find meaningful employment, allow employers to increase their resources and provide support for teachers.
Our vision is to be the leading organisation fostering opportunities for young people. We focus on creating connections between young people and the workforce. We aim to equip students with the best possible tools to help them stand out from the crowd.
