Many disadvantaged students lack the guidance and connections to help them transition from study to work. Our Cadetship to Career program is a joint venture between The Smith Family and the Business Council of Australia. It offers students paid work experience with the Council’s member companies, including training and development.
“I'm excited about the Cadetship to Career program because it offers me something that I've really been lacking,” said Kevin.
"Coming from a low-income family, I don't have networks, because my parents don’t have connections. It's very hard for me to go into the professional workforce and get a professional job without these networks.”Now Kevin feels well-equipped to build a successful future.
“Ever since Year 7, The Smith Family has helped me pursue my love for art, which has grown into my passion for architecture. To my sponsors, I'd like to say a really big thank you,” said Kevin.
