Digital Springboard is proud to partner with the Clontarf Foundation, a national organisation that improves the education, discipline, life skills, self-esteem and employment prospects of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men.

Already, we’ve had a lot of fun piloting some of the courses with Clontarf students from Swan Hill and Bairnsdale. Last week we ran our Build your CV course with 15 students in the Melbourne Infoxchange office. At the beginning of the session, the Clontarf students said they were nervous about writing their first CVs and didn’t know where to start. They left the Infoxchange office with confidence, with one student sharing, ‘I felt good writing about myself and what I have done’.

This is a great success!

Ben Djuve, Clontarf’s Employment Officer for Victoria, said that the Digital Springboard course “helped kick-start the boys’ understanding of the importance of a CV and how technology can be used to improve their own CVs. There are also some very important messages given around digital footprints and how they can potentially effect a prospective employee.”

Our partnership with the Clontarf Foundation goes beyond the boundaries of Victoria – we’ll soon see students across Western Australia, Northern Territory, Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland having access to digital learning opportunities.
