Run exclusively out of Ravenhall Correctional Centre, YMCA ReBuild’s Maintenance Skills Training Program provides participants the opportunity to learn and develop a wide range of basic maintenance and handyman skills.
With a strong focus on health and safety, participants will learn to use a range of hand and power tools and apply these skills to various maintenance tasks and techniques throughout the duration of the program.
Participants also learn and develop effective personal workplace skills and practices that will enable them to secure future employment, demonstrate the qualities to successfully maintain employment and create more personal and professional career opportunities and advances.
The program is delivered by YMCA ReBuild facilitators possessing expert skills and knowledge in regard to facility maintenance services and personal standards. Their aims will be to instill life-long skills and knowledge, while building rapport, respect and positive relationships within the participant group to create a positive and supportive program atmosphere and learning experience.
YMCA ReBuild Shop
As part of our Trade and Employability Skills program based at Ravenhall Correctional Centre, participants also craft woodwork pieces which are available for purchase at our YMCA ReBuild shop.
These unique, custom-made woodwork pieces are manufactured by participants of YMCA ReBuild, a social enterprise dedicated to rebuilding the lives of young people involved in, or who are at risk of being involved in, the criminal justice system.
All proceeds from purchased items will be invested straight back into YMCA ReBuild which will enable us to train, employ, mentor and build long term careers for more young people.
