Booderee National Park Supports Inaugural Naidoc Careers Expo

Jul 5, 2019

Booderee National Park is collaborating with the Wreck Bay Aboriginal Community Council, Regional Development Australia (Far South Coast) and Vincentia High School to address Aboriginal youth disengagement at high school.

The four organisations will deliver the Vincentia High School’s NAIDOC Careers Expo on Friday, 5 July 2019.

The Expo, in the lead up to NAIDOC Week from 7-14 July 2019 is a great opportunity to prepare students aged 15-18 years (Year 10-12) for the workforce.

The aim of the expo is to engage with Indigenous youth and gauge their career aspirations by showcasing different types of businesses, industries and trades that provide career pathways and employment opportunities within the region.

There will be almost 30 exhibitors at the Careers Expo including the University of Wollongong, Grand Pacific Health, Shoalhaven City Council and Australian Community Media, showcasing a variety of businesses, industries, organisations, governments, companies and trades offering a variety of opportunities from apprenticeships to work placements.

More than 60 Indigenous students from the Shoalhaven Region are expected to be in attendance.

Booderee National Park is a strong supporter and advocate for Indigenous employment with more than 70 per cent of staff at the park identifying as Indigenous.
