School’s not for everyone, and at Key Employment Youth Service (KEYS) we get that. That’s why we created KAPOW. We help young people to get real life skills that give them a leg up in the work force.
You get to learn new skills, earn a year 12 equivalent and have some fun along the way. Did we mention there’s no uniform?
Free! Zero! Zilch! Nada!
Yep, if all these points apply to you.
In Coffs Harbour, we have our very own youth hub, with basketball and tennis courts, a kitchen, Netflix, washing facilities and so much more. Our other offices are training facilities too. As well as being in the classroom, you’ll get to be out and about, including gaining real skills in the workplace.
We can help organise concession travel cards, plus we can help get your L’s and some lessons.
That’s fine! Just contact us and we can discuss whether KAPOW is right for you.
You will gain a nationally recognised qualification at Certificate III Level (Year 12 equivalent). Course offerings may vary depending on availability, but all courses will help to teach you new skills for work and life.
“Before becoming a client of Key Employment I had tried to get a job part time. My friends were all getting jobs, but I wasn’t able to get one. I also found trying to apply for jobs on the internet hard because I am dyslexic. Thanks to Key Employment I am now employed as a kitchen hand.”
“Key Employment has helped me out a lot. I’m not as shy now and Key has helped me get a job and I’m more confident.”
“Key is fun! The trainers are awesome. I’m keen to get a job.”
“I like KAPOW because I can do the work well and the trainers are accepting. It is better than school and is helping get me a job.”
“I think they are doing a great job. They are providing for my needs and they are there to help us. It’s nice to have some support without feeling afraid; they are very reassuring. I feel looked after and respected, and they allow support, but don’t take away your dignity.”
