Re­sumes made easy at Youth Cen­tre

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE - Madi­son Wil­liams

CHIL­DREN at the Moss­man Youth Cen­tre are now able to write and print re­sumes thanks to the staff at the Queens­land Govern­ment Agent Pro­gram (QGAP).

Youth de­vel­op­ment co-or­di­na­tor at the cen­tre Be­sarah Har­ris said the chil­dren had be­gun to take pride in their work and felt a sense of own­er­ship.

“It’s been great. We’ve been get­ting on­line and do­ing job searches, typ­ing up re­sumes and do­ing tax file num­bers,” she said.

“It’s all one-on-one with the kids so they feel safe to ask ques­tions and learn.”

The fund­ing came from QGAP, which is a govern­ment ser­vice that pro­vides sup­port to the lo­cal com­mu­nity by of­fer­ing ad­vice con­cern­ing trans­port, hous­ing and other govern­ment re­lated sys­tems.

QGAP staff can be found at the front desk of the Moss­man Mag­is­trates Court.
