Employment Pathways for Young Asylum Seekers

The EPYAS program provides career assistance for young people seeking asylum in Australia, so they can develop their own path to training, volunteering or work.

The program provides free, two-day workshops that cover:

  • how to find work in Australia
  • how to prepare and update a CV
  • interview skills
  • how to plan and apply for training, volunteering and work experience
  • Australian workplace culture

After the workshops, participants get one-on-one support to work towards their career goals.

Who is eligible

Young people aged 18 to 35 years who are seeking asylum and living in Victoria are eligible to participate. The program is tailored for those with work rights.
