Young Manufacturers Groups
YMG: YOUNG MANUFACTURERS GROUP - 15 TO 30 YEARS
National Hands Network YMG Programmes are designed as a stepping stone for unemployed youth 15 - 30 years. National Hands Network offers its practical learning TRADE YOURSELF Platform to the YMG; encouraging a plethora of commercial pathways for its participants to pursue. The YMG programme mandates clear business objectives, with real deliverables and deadlines to ensure YMG youth secure paid work opportunity, that youth with bright ideas are mentored to a framed entrepreneurial project worthy of nurture, incubation, launch and commercialisation.
National Hands Network said to a group of long term unemployed youth in a marginalised region in Australia...‘ If there are no jobs out there, then lets think up and create them'.
These disengaged youth told the National Hands Network that they come from an environment of multi generation welfare reliance, substance abuse, rife risky behaviour and crime, homelessness, stunted school achievements, zero employment pathways and fear for their lives and those of their peers. Their backdrop is hopelessness: high level fear and anxiety feeding physical and mental ill health. NHN sadly spoke to group after group from what we now term Generation W....washed up human beings 15 to 30 years living in a Wasteland.
Generation W is a global phenomenon. Generation W is unacceptable to the National Hands Network.
