Each young person employed by YMCA ReBuild undergoes a thorough individual risk assessment including National Police Checks and Safeguarding Young People Training.
Each YMCA ReBuild crew typically consists of 2-3 people depending on the size of the job. A crew is made up of;
- Crew Leader: We employ experienced crew leaders to coach, mentor and supervise staff
- Crew Member: Crew members are sourced from a multitude of areas including the Department of Human Services, Department of Corrections and various job service agencies
Operating since 2010, YMCA ReBuild is fully health and safety compliant, and have up to date Workers Compensation Insurance and Public Liability cover. All Crew Leaders also hold Working with Children's Checks, First Aid Certificates, and Worksafe White Cards.
To ensure the highest quality in our services, we hire experienced crew leaders who are qualified in their specified trades such as painting, landscaping, and carpentry.
By offering stable employment, YMCA ReBuild reduces reoffending rates for young employees from over 50% to just 5% and provides a significant saving to government. This supports young people to change their lives for the better - young people like Cam.
YMCA ReBuild crew leaders and young employees are supported by YMCA Bridge Project specialised case managers to ensure all of their needs can be addressed for the duration of their employment.
