About Us

Sticking Together Project


It’s in our DNA to find better ways to support young people in their transition to independent lives. The Sticking Together Project is our innovative approach to youth unemployment. It is a service that helps young people ‘stick’ to work.

The Sticking Together Project was inspired by SYC’s work to develop and advocate for its My First Job Initiative. The fifth ‘pillar’ of My First Job is post-placement support and the Sticking Together Project is the design of a modern, never-before-tried approach to supporting young people.

SYC has been joined on this project by researchers from Queensland University of Technology (QUT) and The Australian Centre for Social Innovation (TACSI).

The project has seen trials in South Australia, Victoria, and Queensland, supporting over 190 young Australians to stick to work. Our blog has regular updates on coaches, participants and results of the pilot project.
