Young People

Intro to MWLP

We believe that young people have original and creative ideas that have the potential to make the world a better place. We encourage you to follow your dreams – and to dare to be different. Find ways to learn and explore opportunities and possibilities now – because this will shape the ideas that you have about your future.

We hope that you will take the time to explore our website. It has news and stories about other successful young people that we hope will inspire and encourage you. We also have information that we think will benefit you, and have plans for young people to further develop our website so that it remains useful and relevant for you. Enjoy!

Young People at Work

Do you want some practical tips to help you find work? Are you interested in finding out about your rights in the workplace? Do you want to find out more about things like pay, working conditions and what to do if you want to move on or are let go? If so, then go to http://www.youngpeopleatwork.nsw.gov.au/

Career Guidance/Information

Do you need some help with your career planning? Could you use some advice or tips to get you going? Why not talk with your school careers adviser, TAFE counsellor or university careers service? You can also start by having a chat with your family and friends – or even better – go and find out through volunteer work, part-time work or work experience!! Just get started – that is the hardest part – and know that most young people will have multiple jobs and careers, so you shouldn’t feel pressured about where you begin.

Cablenet Technologies Group, located in Moorebank, has been established for 27 years. They are managed service providers for the IT industry.

We encourage them to ask questions. Last week we had an outstanding student who rebuilt two computers, formatted them and had them up and running.” (more…)

What do people say?

“You can make a difference in someone’s life just by mentoring them for one week.  It will help you and the student, grow and mature as an individual.  We have had some excellent students resulting in us hiring four waitresses, one kitchen hand and multiple apprentices – all from the MWLP program.”
Campbelltown Golf Club – Darren Neate, Head Chef

“It’s a good opportunity to see the calibre of Macarthur’s youth.  We get to screen those with potential that will ultimately benefit the company.  The students are encouraged to ask lots of questions to assess whether this industry is right for them.  It’s a win-win situation.”
