National Green Jobs Corps is an Australian Government work experience and training program that offers a combination of environmental work experience, skill development and accredited training for youth aged 17 to 24 years.
Through this program, it has been estimated 10,000 young Australians will have the ability to fill employment opportunities in emerging green and climate change industries.
With National Green Jobs Corps running at ITeC since 2009, the project has provided not only manpower to the Killalea State Park, but it has assisted in building the confidence of the participants, encouraging a commitment to ongoing education while participants learn worthwhile work and life skills that can put them on the pathway to employment and further education.
