Unlock the truth to youth!

Are you ready for your breakthrough?

#YES2016

In a social media-fuelled society, it is becoming increasingly difficult for Education and Employment specialists, as well as Governments, to engage with the unpredictable and ever-changing youth of Australia.

Employment

  • How young people perceive the world of work and the most common engagement issues
  • Why Apprenticeships are unattractive to youth and how we can change that.
  • Why young people don’t understand Government and the impact of this on government programs.

Education

  • How to attract young Australians into Vocational Education and Training.
  • Do degrees matter? Industry impact and requirements and how these affect the perception of education.
  • How young people perceive government loans and how to better position these.

Engagement

  • How young people perceive the future of jobs & career paths.
  • Understanding the modern day young person. The methods that Y13 use to attract students & talent.
  • How young people perceive the effective delivery of studies after high school.

PROGRAM

#YES16 has been designed to immerse you into the mind of a 16 - 24-year-old. Delivering the content you require in the way young people learn best.

The way content is developed is absolutely essential to the success of your business’s youth engagement strategy, whether that be in the form of editorial, imagery, video, advertisement or social media post. Content is how youth relate to your brand and its messaging, and the way it is created has a direct influence whether a young person will make an action on what they have seen or read.
