JobQuest Youth Programs
JobQuest Hunter / Newcastle Nov 2014
All roads led to Teralba on Monday. Residents from Anglican Care Nursing Homes arrived for a Christmas Morning Tea party at Tasty Treats on Teralba. It was organized by our JobQuest retail students. The enterprise based Youth Connections program aimed to provide an opportunity for disengaged students to gain customer service skills.
Tasty Treats on Teralba became a weekly activity and morning tea outing for aged care residents. One young student went from couch surfing to a job with a Rathmines Auto Wrecker.
Chrystine from Anglican Care thought Tasty Treats on Teralba has been a wonderful success with residents stating that they feel like they are helping the younger generation by giving them confidence in themselves while improving their skills & that they feel this is evident each time they visit. Congratulations on a wonderful intergenerational program. Read More.....
