Our ability to belong and live with purpose is intrinsically linked to our capacity to learn, earn and live. But with more than one million young Australians currently unemployed, and additional barriers for the more marginalised, some people need greater support than others to fully participate in the workforce. For more than 30 years, Employment Options has empowered marginalised young people in South Australia to transform their lives and lead a life of purpose.

Being sustainably employed is more challenging for young people who lack adequate resources and support networks. Learning difficulties, disability, mental illness, poverty, substance abuse, absence of positive role models and the influence of generational unemployment or traumas at home can also make it disproportionately harder.

Employment Options helps people aged 14 to 30 to build their capacity to set and achieve their goals for a thriving future. We do this by nurturing trusted partnerships to help each person:
- overcome their barriers
- realise their own potential
- safely shift self-limiting beliefs and behaviours, and
- access the tools and support they need to explore and shape the future they imagine.
Employment Options is not a contracted employment services provider. We work with young people before they begin applying for jobs to engage them in the future.

From alternative learning centres to signature services such as the entrepreneurial “BizAbility” program, and “Pathfinder” which harnesses the power of gamification, Employment Options has a proud history of helping to create a world where every person can thrive.

Whether we are working with a student struggling to stay in high school, or a young person who hasn’t found their place in the workforce for some years, our person-centred approach can help them craft their best life.

With YOUR support, we can continue to make sure every young person in South Australia has a real pathway to an inspired and purposeful life.
