Woodgrove Jobs Fair

Hope Street Youth and Family Services love being part of the Melton community. We not only offer job opportunities to the community, we also engage and offer job ready skills to young people who then gain employment with local businesses.

Hope Street supports over 250 young people in Melton each year. Core to the service offer is young people setting education and employment goals and connecting to the community. On 16 August 2022 Hope Street participated in the Woodgrove Shopping Centre Jobs Fair in Melton. We showcased the work of Hope Street staff and current job vacancies, and throughout the week young people will attend and gain some job readiness skills and meet potential employers. 

"It's great for Hope Street to be actively part of the local community. That young people are welcomed to a Jobs Fair and actively engaged in employment opportunities - be it firstly a casual job or thinking about ongoing opportunities - it's vital to their journey towards independence. Thanks Woodgrove Shopping Centre for the event." -- Georgina, Youth Homelessness Health Program Coordinator, Hope Street

Hope to Home in Whittlesea

FEATURED PILOT PROGRAM: Hope to Home in Whittlesea

Many young people face obstacles when trying to secure stable accommodation due to no rental history, lack of affordable housing, and no employment to sustain rental leases.  The Hope to Home in Whittlesea pilot program will address these issues by:

  • Facilitating the transition of up to 30 young people (and their children) from the Hope Street in Whittlesea program or Whittlesea Housing into 1 and 2 bedroom units
  • Providing case management once they secure private rental of these units
  • Helping these young people maintain their tenancy, employment, education and training, and community connections
  • Engaging the support of community stakeholders including local businesses to address barriers contributing to youth homelessness

Please contact us if you would like to become a partner and support at risk young people and young families.
