Under the partnership, indigenous youth aged 16 to 25 will be able to access education and employment opportunities at four of Evolution’s regional operations — Mt Carlton and Cracow in Queensland, Cowal in NSW and Mungari in WA — through the academy’s website.

The targeted training and support available includes writing job applications, compiling a resume and having the confidence to attend and succeed in a job interview.

Mr Thurston said the partnership had the potential to meaningfully change lives.

“This partnership has been designed to allow young people in regional communities to get a leg up not just through training and employment, but even through the confidence-building which comes with that,” he said.
