Romesh George, a local Yawuru man from Broome was referred to our Nyirrwa Murrgurlayi facility by his support worker at local organisation Nyamba Buru Yawuru, whose Transition to Work (TTW) program focuses on forging pathways in employment and training for young, local Aboriginal people.
Nyirrwa Murrgurlayi’s Employment and Education Housing (EEH) Program was the perfect fit for Romesh. With the support of our Case Support Worker (CSW) Lauren, Romesh was able to set some goals and re-establish his focus on completing his Certificate III in Civil Construction and get ahead.
Upon graduating his Certificate III in Civil Construction, Romesh was commended for striving to perfect both his practical and classroom knowledge, and also his near perfect attendance after moving to Nyirrwa Murrgurlayi. Romesh was offered a handful of employment opportunities after he graduated and now has established permanent employment at a local landscaping company.
Romesh has since been enjoying working full time as a landscaper, and has just recently been
awarded the 2018 ‘Employee of the Year’ for the TTW Program, which is a fantastic way to celebrate a year full of successes and growth for Romesh.
