In 2018 we launched our own onsite café and training kitchen, which provides free hospitality training to young jobseekers. This year we have been broadening our influence across NSW through online programming and support.
You will have the opportunity to make a true difference as a Board Director at AYC. Key strategic directions driven by the AYC Board include the development of new social enterprises, revenue growth and diversification, creation of partnerships in the NGO and corporate sectors and the development of policies and procedures.
