The MAP Program supports young people in the Canberra region to become more resilient, connected and job-ready by coupling mental health training with career workshops and volunteering.
COVID-19 has had a significant impact on employment, with young people being disproportionately affected by job losses. This program will seek to support young people who are:
- Aged 18-30
- Seeking employment
The MAP Program will do this by combining mental health training hosted by Lifeline Canberra and Mental Illness Education ACT (MIEACT), with a range of job-readiness activities, including employment workshops, and participation in volunteering. Program participants must complete the training by the 9th September, 2022
Through the completion of these activities, the MAP Program aims to increase the mental health literacy of participants, whilst also providing pathways to employment through volunteering.
There is no cost to participate in this program, with thanks to funding provided by the ACT Health Directorate.
The MAP Program does not place participants in paid employment and cannot guarantee paid employment during or following the completion of the program.
