InfoTrack was proud to dig deep in support of The Sir David Martin Foundation which is undoubtedly making a difference to the lives of disadvantaged young people across Australia. Part of InfoTrack’s executive team conquered their fears and abseiled down the side of a 33 storey Sydney skyscraper in October 2015 as part of the annual Abseil for Youth all in the process of raising over $10,000 for disadvantaged youths across Australia. We would like to thank and congratulate the participants and we look forward to working with the foundation again in the future.
In 2016, InfoTrack will again be supporting the cause sending six more of our wonderful staff over the edge to raise money for disadvantaged young people, for more details please go here.
Jobsupport started as a federal government pilot in 1986 to provide training and ongoing support for people with intellectual disabilities to enter the workforce. Today, Jobsupport works with over 600 employers in Sydney and Melbourne. Jobsupport celebrates the best outcome service for people with a moderate intellectual disability.
Jobsupport’s mission is to place, train and maintain as many people with a significant intellectual disability as possible into quality jobs in the regular workforce that meet both their employment needs and the needs of the employer.
Working with Jobsupport has given InfoTrack an opportunity to give someone with an intellectual disability a satisfying job in our vibrant office environment.
Patricia joined our team in July 2013 as a part- time administration assistant, as well as having the responsibility of keeping our staff kitchen organised throughout the day… which is not such an easy job at times! We look forward to our continued work with Jobsupport now, and in the future.
Oasis Pathways Program (OPP) is a program run by the Salvation Army which provides homeless and disadvantaged youth training and work experience to help them confidently move into the workforce.
The aim of the program is to provide a foundation from which young people can launch themselves confidently into the workforce. It is about providing a safe and nurturing environment for young people to learn important life skills, gain a realistic appreciation of what it means to be a responsible employee, have faith in their own abilities and with that, the confidence to take on full or part time employment.
The target group is disadvantaged young people who are at risk of long-term unemployment who may also be experiencing homelessness (aged 16 – 25).
InfoTrack is proud to have a relationship with Oasis, providing work experience opportunities at our workplace. We have been able to assist with providing professional training and experience to assist with their future endeavours to enter the workforce. We have received positive feedback from our work experience candidates and are looking forward to getting further involved with this fantastic program.
InfoTrack also recently supported the Oasis Golf Day which raised over $20,000 for the education centre at Oasis.
