Sharee Rises Up To Work
Nov. 11, 2019
The Nyamba Buru Yawuru Warrmijala Murrgurlayi ‘Rise up to work’ program is already delivering results.
Sharee Dolby is one of the 44 young people who have gained employment from the Warrmijala Murrgurlayi ‘Rise up to work’ program.
The program, which commenced in late 2018, provides Broome employers with a pool of job-ready and skilled Aboriginal people to recruit from. It is delivered by Nyamba Buru Yawuru as part of Shell’s Social Investment portfolio in response to feedback that jobs for people was a key priority for the community.
Nyamba Buru Yawuru provide intensive pre-employment and training support as well as employer engagement and labour market assessment in order to place young people into work.
Sharee completed the pre-employment training and is now studying a Cert II Land & Sea Conservation Management as well as working with Yawuru Country Managers.
The program has also piqued the interest of the Hon. Joel Fitzgibbon MP, Senator Murray Watt, Shadow Minister for Northern Australia when they recently paid a visit to Broome and saw these outcomes first-hand.
I feel a lot better than where I was 12 months ago. I liked that I got to attend something every day and gain further skills and qualifications and the activities were variety of TAFE and on country.
