Young people are facing a rapidly changing world of work with research indicating they will have on average 17 jobs across five different industries throughout their lives. The traditional employment relationship is likely to become more fluid with people holding portfolios of activities, including paid employment, unpaid employment (internships or volunteering) and self-employment.
To support young people in navigating these changing labour markets, Australia will need to invest to ensure they are innovative, creative and enterprising. Australia is one of the only advanced economies without dedicated youth entrepreneurship initiatives, yet the type of human capital needed for Australia’s future prosperity is best developed in a culture that encourages entrepreneurship and supports young people collaborating and taking risks with new ideas.
A culture of entrepreneurship and collaboration is key to Australia’s future economic and social development.
Young people need support to navigate the changing job market, and Australia as a whole needs to invest in developing an innovative, creative and enterprising workforce. FYA is committed to being at the forefront, leading this change.
The FYA Hub will be an addition to Australia’s entrepreneurial ecosystem. FYA will work to build their capacity to come together and back their young people as a key resource and enable them to leverage from the wealth of connections and expertise in the community.
A unique space for young social entrepreneurs to work, meet like minded people and get their organisation up and running. FYA’s goal is to develop an active community of social innovators, entrepreneurs and changemakers, so we’re bringing them all together under one roof.
Based at our flagship location in the Melbourne CBD, the FYA Hub is a brand new co-working space for young social entrepreneurs to collaborate and work alongside other changemakers.
