We’re thrilled to announce that we have been awarded $2.1m from the NSW Bushfire Local Economic Recovery (BLER) Fund to launch our new EcoCrews™ program in Southern NSW.
EcoCrews is an exciting new program which will offer quality pre-employment training creating 45 well- paying, eco-friendly jobs for young people whilst completing much needed bushfire recovery work through environmental EcoProjects.
In collaboration with the Eurobodalla and Bega Valley Shire Councils, as well as the Stepping Stone Farm we’ll be creating six EcoCrews over the coming year, who will undergo 6-months of paid training and employment to deliver vital land-based works.
Whilst on the program, EcoCrew Members will undertake accredited units in Conservation and Land Management, complemented by mentoring and supervision. We’ll also be adding value to EcoCrew Members’ experience through innovations such as our package of social enterprise support.
We’re excited to share more with you in the coming weeks and months.
