VCAL Inspiring Young People Lunch

On Tuesday 6th August a selection of year 10’s accompanied by year 11 and year 12 VCAL Wonthaggi Secondary College students were given the opportunity to hear the journeys of representatives of the community and their personal pathways on how they got to where they are now with their careers at the Inspiring Young People event at the Wonthaggi Workman’s Club.

The day involved a two course meal with students and community mentors sitting together, networking and building relationships. Our community mentors came from a variety of professions which included the Victoria Police, Fisheries Victoria, Bunnings, The Bass Coast Shire, Local Employment Networks to name a few. We also had multiple guest speakers stand up the front and tell their personal story and how they have been successful in their respective fields.

They day was a fantastic event and our students have gained a wealth of knowledge from the event. A big thank you to the South Gippsland Bass Coast LLEN for funding the event, and in particular Karena Kerr for all her hard work.
