On October 4th, a story promoting the JVES program by DJPR was aired on 7NEWS Melbourne, featuring our very own Mentor Esther Yoa and our client Obsitu.

Obsitu was referred to JVES by CMY and was experiencing significant hardship and needed help securing work. Esther was able to connect her with emergency relief, and with support from our Mentor Amanda, Obsitu was placed into a support worker role within 2 weeks.

The Department then decided to share this story with the community and have TaskForce and partners as the face of the JVES program! An amazing story and achievement by all.

The Jobs Victoria Employment Services (JVES) aim to help Victorians to get back into employment. TaskForce delivers these services through two programs, MyWay and AfriCareers, assisting participants to overcome barriers to employment, up-skill and gain the confidence to start a new job, while providing ongoing support to ensure job sustainability.
