Create your own business
We are entering a period where gaining a job through traditional means is challenging. More and more, we need to create our own job. Consequently, The Centre is actively working with two not-for-profit organisations who are dedicated to assisting people to develop an entrepreneurial mind-set and think about how they can be job creators. We are working on ways to integrate these skills into our adult and youth VCAL programs, as well as host programs for other people who are keen to explore the world of micro business.
