The Bridge Project
The Bridge Project WA is an initiative lead by YMCA that aims to reduce the re-offender rates among young people. They offer meaningful employment opportunities and make available education, training and workplace mentoring for young people about to leave custody.
The Bridge Project utilises many services offered by the YMCA; this includes Lynks counselling, Big Brothers Big Sisters and YMCA Mobile Youth Services.
Recently, Active Plumbing decided to get involved with this program. Over the past few months they have trained and mentored Kye into becoming a qualified tradesperson.
Active are very keen to continue their involvement in the Bridge Project and they are looking forward to interviewing more participants for the next apprenticeship position. They plan to offer at least one or two positions across the company each year.
