Experts show women the way to jobs

Women from a range of cultural backgrounds gathered in Shepparton for a Friendship Cafe event this week.

Ethnic Council of Shepparton and District project co-ordinator Sam Atukorala said the Friendship Cafe was run to provide a safe and welcoming place for young women aged between 13 and 25 from different cultural backgrounds.

Mr Atukorala said the cafe sessions allowed the women to meet others, participate in group activities and develop life skills.

The 11th session on Tuesday morning provided more than 40 young women with the opportunity to learn from two guest speakers.

GOTAFE career adviser Narelle Lowe and Shepparton’s La Trobe University campus marketing and engagement adviser Kristina Marko discussed educational and employment pathways at the Friendship Cafe event.

Friendship Cafes are funded through the Victorian Government’s Department of Justice and Regulation.
