Southern Telegraph - - News -

A new ini­tia­tive has started in an at­tempt to pro­vide Rock­ing­ham and Kwinana stu­dents with the skills to tran­si­tion from school to em­ploy­ment.

Rock­ing­ham Cen­tre and Bea­con Foun­da­tion have launched Light the Way, aim­ing to re­duce youth un­em­ploy­ment and dis­en­gage­ment.

An event will take place on May 26 at the Rock­ing­ham Cen­tre to raise money for the ini­tia­tive.

Rock­ing­ham Cen­tre man­ager Aaron Ben­nett said Light the Way was an op­por­tu­nity for the com­mu­nity to come to­gether and sup­port the work of the Bea­con Foun­da­tion.

“We are proud to work with Bea­con to en­gage young peo­ple in Rock­ing­ham to achieve ca­reer suc­cess and help al­le­vi­ate is­sues of un­em­ploy­ment,” he said. “Rock­ing­ham Cen­tre and Vicin­ity Cen­tres will match every dol­lar raised dur­ing our Light the Way cam­paign, which will en­sure the Bea­con pro­grams con­tinue to pro­vide sup­port (for) young peo­ple in our com­mu­nity.”
