Future Finders Program to Provide Opportunities for Lithgow’s Young People

Archived 7 Apr 2018 - Posted: 10 Feb 2018
Throughout 2018 Lithgow’s young people will be offered a range of educational and employment opportunities through the Future Finders Program which aims to inspire young people to build their own futures within Lithgow.

“Lithgow’s young people have tremendous talent and ideas. We are excited to be launching the Future Finders program as it will help to develop the necessary skills and knowledge to start making ideas a reality,” said Lithgow City Council Mayor Stephen Lesslie.

The Future Finders program has been made possible through the Youth Opportunities grant provided by the Department of Family and Community Services. The grant allows for educational and employment tasters, a youth leadership forum and business workshops.

As part of the Future Finders program local high school students will be invited to participate in an educational taster – visiting local education providers to sample what they have to offer. Students will also be offered the opportunity to participate in a youth leadership forum where they will develop leadership skills and be provided the platform to comment on local issues.

Local businesses and organisations can also play a part in the program by registering to host a young person for a day to highlight what their work and workplace is all about.

Finally there will be a suite of workshops aimed at developing skills that will support small business startups and entrepreneurship. 

The first set of Future Finders workshops will be delivered by the BEC and will be held at the Lithgow Library from 4:30pm – 7:30pm. All workshop attendees will receive a certificate of attendance. Workshops are free and open to young people aged 15-24 years old. The following workshops are now open for registration:

  • Getting started – 27th February
  • Brand and Design - 6th March
  • Going Digital – 7th March
  • Start-Up Essentials – 13th March
  • The new world of business – 14th March

You can register your interest via the Council website or call Council’s Community Development Team on (02) 6354 9999.
