What is Step Into Success?

Sharehouse’s Step Into Success program is open to any young people, who are 15-25 years old, to get the skills and support needed to successfully find work.

People might have told you to “Get a job” like it’s an easy thing to do – but we know it’s not always that easy if you’ve never worked or been able to keep a job before. This program has been designed to help you to get ready for work and learn the skills and strategies you need to keep that job when you get it.

How will we help you?

Our facilitator will work with you and a small group of people over to gain the confidence and skills you need, in a supportive environment. This is a great opportunity for some social connection with other young people. You’ll be working and learning as part of team, but we keep our groups as small as we can so that you’ll all have a chance to get individual one-on-one support that is tailored to you and your needs. That includes help and training with things like:

  • Resume preparation and writing.
  • Job interview skills (and practice).
  • Job search advice, including how and where to look, and how to apply.
  • Employability skills, such as communication in the workplace, working well in a team, problem solving, planning and organising, time management, and self-management.
  • Understanding employer expectations.
  • Understanding your rights as an employee.
  • Organising the paperwork that you need to work (like ID, bank account, and tax information).
  • Networking opportunities with local businesses and employers to learn about their industry experience and knowledge, and to hear about any employment opportunities.

While we’re working with you to find work, if you are eligible, our Mobile Support workers can assist with any additional support you might need to be independent and successful.

What do we expect from you?

Step Into Success is a 5-week program, which takes place in our dedicated (and comfortable) training space 3 days a week.

On Tuesdays, Wednesdays, & Thursdays we expect you to show up ready to learn and work at 9:30am and stay until we finish at 2:30pm.

You should bring an appetite, because we have plenty of food and drinks for you to have while you’re with us – you can help yourself to tea and coffee and breakfast stuff when you arrive, and you’ll also get lunch each day. We usually have lots of awesome snacks in the cupboards too. You can even learn how to make a proper coffee with our industrial coffee machine (in case you’d like to work in a café).
