Ravear joined our Transition to Work program in May 2018 after being referred by his high school.
Originally, Raveear struggled with attendance and participation in the program, and with zero work experience, this made the prospect of him finding work seem daunting.
Weeks and months of seesaw-like attendance went by, leaving Ravear on the verge of exiting the program. Joey, Ravear’s Youth Employment Coach, continued to persevere and was able to slowly begin moving him towards his goals.
As a result of a personal challenge, Ravear’s attitude towards finding employment and progressing his personal attributes changed drastically. Soon after, his program attendance skyrocketed, which started a domino effect flow of good things to come. Ravear started receiving phone calls and job interviews, and within weeks landed his first job at KFC in Westfield, Parramatta.
As of February 2020, Ravear has remained in full-time employment for more than 14 months, and has never been happier about his stability, security, and capability to help his mother with finances – and of course, his ability to buy fresh Nike kicks every few weeks!
