A Youth-At-Risk specialist DES service for young people aged 16 to 25 years across the North Western and Northern regions of Melbourne

DES services help people with a disability find work and keep a job. The objective of DES is to provide immediate access to tailored services for job seekers who have a disability.

Youth Projects will be delivering a Youth-At-Risk specialist DES service for young people aged 16 to 25 years across the North Western and Northern regions of Melbourne. Our specialised youth DES team will be outreach based and fully mobile, providing young people with pro-active outreach to enable full access into our services.
