Evaluation of a program targeted to disengaged Indigenous youth 15-19 years to support them to remain at school, or undertake training or employment in the transition from school to work. The project required visits to 12 pilot sites located in each state and the NT, conducting focus groups and interviews with youth participants, Job Network members, consultants, community members, educators, youth services and other relevant parties. Data analysis and comprehensive reporting (including presentations) led to recommendations for improvements and the further roll out of the program.
