The Youth Enterprise Hub builds 21st century entrepreneurial capabilities in all young people in Melbourne's inner north.
YEH and Yarra Youth Services 'Building Enterprise Skills' Workshops with VCAL students
Enterprise skills workshops are being developed by Yarra Youth Services in collaboration with YEH for the six pilot schools in May/June of 2019. The workshops will be conducted by local young social entrepreneurs.
Teacher Professional Development
In March 2019, YEH held its first teacher professional development workshop for the six pilot schools. Trang Du, Director of her social enterprise, Two Square Pegs developed hands-on activities to improve teacher’s understanding of the enterprise skills and inner north Melbourne’s start up culture. Dr. Paul Atkins, collaborative psychologist, demonstrated strategies for teachers to support students understanding of deep listening and collaboration.
YEH Think Tank Series
In 2018, YEH hosted a series of 4 Think Tanks to gain a deeper understanding of entrepreneurship for young people in the 21st century based on YEH’s Guiding Principles of Social Inclusion and Environmental Responsibility.
The future of work requires deeper self knowledge and social awareness combined with creativity, project management and communication skills. YEH provides a platform for teachers and young people to create a real world curriculum in collaboration with social entrepreneurs and local councils across the Cities of Yarra, Darebin and Moreland to deal with the challenges of tomorrow.
We would like to gratefully acknowledge Raffaela Galati-Brown, Principal at Northern College of Arts and Technology, and Marcus Newman, VET Creative and Digital Media Trainer, NCAT and NCAT students for their dedicated filming and photography of YEH’s work.
