Words from previous participants

“The most significant change for me from doing the SEWB training is that I have felt more comfortable about speaking out and comfortable about doing it. I have enhanced my association of togetherness and will continue to highlight this in my life. I am more settled in my life and will continue to be a “voice” for SEWB in our community; Gave me the confidence to say what I wanted to say, to believe in what I wanted and not stand back and not say anything.”

“After the NEP program I have completed a Cert II in Business and done work experience with the zone youth spaces. Now I volunteer for Australian Red Cross Kwinana. I really enjoy working in the Kwinana community and to be a role model to the younger youth. I’m also studying a Cert III in Community Service; It made me realise there’s more out there and a lot you could give to the community and to also prevent the youth from making wrong choices in life.”
