RDA FSC SUPPORTS INAUGURAL NAIDOC CAREERS EXPO

Jul 17, 2019

On Friday, 5 July 2019, Regional Development Australia – Far South Coast (RDA FSC), in collaboration with Booderee National Park, Wreck Bay Aboriginal Community Council and Vincentia High School (VHS) delivered Vincentia High School’s inaugural NAIDOC Careers Expo.

The Expo was organised in the lead up to NAIDOC Week (7-14 July 2019) to gauge the career aspirations of Indigenous youth aged 15-18 years of age by showcasing different types of businesses, industries and trades that provide career pathways and employment opportunities within the region.

Approximately 25-30 exhibitors attended the Careers Expo including the University of Wollongong, Australian Federal Police, TAFE NSW, Wreck Bay Aboriginal Community Council and Booderee National Park.

Federal Member for Gilmore, Fiona Phillips, attended the Expo and met with a number of exhibitors and Indigenous students from the Jervis Bay Territory and Shoalhaven Region.

Rob Pollock OAM, Chair of RDA FSC, said:

“It is gratifying to see such a great turn out at the NAIDOC Careers Expo and particularly the partnerships between all the attendees who are all working together to help our young people achieve their aspirations”.
