Program: Children & Youth

Years: 2018, 2019

Grant: $40,000



This is HoMie’s own accredited retail training and education program for young people (18-25) affected by homelessness or hardship. Every year, HoMie selects young people from one of their partnered Alliance Support Services to participate in an eight-month paid on-the-job work experience at the HoMie Street Store or a HoMie Alliance trained business. Upon successful completion of the paid HoMie Pathway Alliance internship, HoMie interns will graduate with: Certificate III in Retail; six-months retail work-experience; eight months personal development training to build improved confidence, resilience, self-aspirations and life-skills; and a permanent place in the HoMie Alumni community.
