Recycle Your Dreams – Empowering Youth Initiative

The Recycle Your Dreams initiative will empower targeted youth aged 15-24 years to address barriers to employment and reduce their risk of becoming welfare dependent via a social enterprise, providing a supportive working environment for youth in their first job.

Recycle Your Dreams was previously funded by the Federal Department of Jobs and Small Business as an Empowering Youth Initiative. The previous 2 year grant has now ended and Recycle Your Dreams has ceased operation. Queensland Youth Services are currently seeking alternative funding.
