Ministerial Visit to Good Cycles

Federal Minister of Employment Tony Burke and Federal MP for Wills Peter Khalil met with Good Cycles to learn more about how we contribute to the lives of young people, their communities and the environment. 

They sat down with Oliver, Luz, Lucas and Luca who shared their experiences of the Good Cycles Youth Employment Program and the impact it has had on them, and the future they see for themselves. The visit follows the budget release, which detailed $21.9 million to fund work integrated social enterprises such as Good Cycles.

80% of young people struggle to find or keep jobs (YMCA, December 2021). The work that we do to remove the barriers they face for safe, meaningful and sustainable employment is only going to become more important.

We thank Federal Minister for Employment Tony Burke and Federal MP for Wills Peter Khalil for visiting us and hearing first-hand how social enterprises can contribute to employment issues in Australia and help empower those most shut out of work opportunities.
