The Real Cost of Linking Homeless Young People to Employment, Education and Training
Broadbent, Robyn
Youth Studies Australia, v27 n3 p30-38 Sep 2008
This article explores the implementation of the Victorian Youth Employment, Education and Training Initiative (YEETI). This statewide initiative delivered brokerage funds to homeless young people through their housing advocates. One of the findings of the project was that the main barrier to young people achieving a stable continuum in their lives was their difficulty in maintaining links to education. The data revealed that a significant proportion of young people requested brokerage funds for education fees. The research identifies two key themes that could lead to a more strategic approach to youth homelessness policy and program delivery. (Contains 5 figures.)
