Career advice for young people           

Do you or a young person you know need support with their career planning. Sometimes plans developed when someone is at school just don’t pan out in the real world, or there is a change in perspective and a new direction needs to be mapped.


YouthNow has friendly and professional career advisors who can assist young people with their future whether they are still in school or have left.

Advisors work one-on-one in a confidential and relaxed environment and respond to the young person’s needs and interests. Participants come away with a better sense of direction, a career pathway plan and link ups to appropriate educational, training or potential employment.

The initial meeting requires1.5 to 2 hours.
It is suggested that 3 to 4 hrs of consultation be considered.

Please contact YouthNow for costs for this service.
