Jobs Australia Foundation
Jobs Australia Limited is the national peak body for non-profit organisations which help unemployed people find and keep jobs. The network helps members make the most effective use of their resources. It also promotes the needs of unemployed people to ensure they receive services and support to help them to participate fully in society.
Jobs Australia has established the Jobs Australia Foundation to help the most marginalised and seriously disadvantaged communities and people in Australia.
The Jobs Australia Foundation is committed to:
- providing direct relief to some of the most disadvantaged people in the community
- supporting projects which foster innovation and best practice to build effective collaborations and inclusive communities
- encouraging Jobs Australia members and the wider community to broaden their own commitment to disadvantaged people and communities, either through the Foundation or by establishing similar ventures.
Indigenous Youth Leadership Program – IYLP
In 2009 the Jobs Australia Foundation (JAF) expanded its investment in Indigenous leadership by committing to the development and delivery of the Indigenous Youth Leadership Program (IYLP). This program is focused on the development of skills and the acquisition of knowledge by Indigenous people as a means of building their ability as individuals and leaders who can effectively address issues and needs in their communities in the future.
