Do you dream of becoming your own boss?


We can help young people to realise their dream by giving them a taste of entrepreneurship and self-employment.


Our Exploring Being My Own Boss program is conducted over two weeks (25 hours per week) and is offered at no cost to you, funded by the Australian Government.

The Exploring Being My Own Workshops will cover:

  • Getting Started: Learning to think like an entrepreneur

  • Idea Validation: Mitigating the risks in business

  • Brand & Design: Making your business look good

  • Going Digital: Getting your business online

  • Connecting to the Ecosystem: Your local opportunities

  • Dollars & Sense: Managing the numbers in your business

  • Sell, Sell, Sell: How to acquire customers forever

  • Pitching & Communication: Crafting your elevator pitch

  • The New World of Business: The changing face of work

There is also the benefit of participating in complementary work placements, where you gain hands-on experience in a similar business as your own start-up on completion of the program.
