Momentum program coming to Guyra and Tingha

26th Mar 2024

The highly acclaimed Momentum Program, an initiative funded by the NSW Government, is making its way to Guyra, Tingha and Armidale.
Collaboratively developed by Real Futures, Pathfinders, and ACE Community Colleges, this ground breaking program aims to empower Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals by helping them overcome common barriers to long-term employment.
The Momentum Program sign-up events will take place in Guyra, Tingha and Armidale during May. With a vision to make a lasting impact, Momentum offers free support to successful applicants, including assistance with obtaining birth certificates, driver’s license acquisition, and finding sustainable employment opportunities.
To be eligible for the program, applicants must identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander, be aged between 16-55 years, and currently be unemployed.
During the Momentum Program, approved participants will receive guidance in applying for their birth certificate on the same day of enrolment. To facilitate the process, individuals are advised to bring any available identification documents, such as Medicare Card, Health Care Card, Certificate of Aboriginality, Student ID card, Health Care Card, or Pension Card.
Momentum represents a ground breaking collaboration among three local organisations. Pathfinders plays a crucial role in assisting individuals with obtaining their birth certificates, while Ace Community Colleges provides guidance and support in obtaining driver’s licenses. Real Futures specialises in employment readiness, training services, and job placements, empowering Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals in their journey towards sustainable employment.
