Ten young people from Portland and Heywood graduated from the Passport 2 Employment Program in front of more than 50 people on Wednesday. The participants completed the nine week program feeling empowered and confident in preparation for the future transition to employment or further education.The brainchild of the Glenelg Transition Action Network (GTAN) and funded by the Port of Portland, Passport 2 Employment is an innovative program that aims to help secondary aged students build practical skills and access opportunities for further education and training. Highlights during the nine weeks have included sessions on nutrition, daily care habits and fitness, an industry tour, a shopping trip and a race around Portland where students enjoyed the opportunity to check out local support agencies, catch a bus and hail a taxi. Passport 2 Employment coordinator Tiana Richardson congratulated all of the graduating students. "I have been extremely impressed with the Passport 2 Employment participants, they have worked hard to learn, grow, develop and build new skills that will be of value in every facet of their lives," Ms Richardson said."The volunteers involved in the program are tremendously proud of what the students have accomplished, it is exciting to think about what they can achieve as they take the next steps in their Lives".
