“I was wagging school, starting fights, swearing at teachers and people down the street, breaking the law, running from cops and other stuff before FLO Connect. I found out about FLO Connect from Cindy at Youth Connections and Joshua. I came to FLO Connect to get somewhere in life and my education. I want to be working full-time doing automotive or something that I can do good with my maths like working at a bank or something for maths skills”

“I was at the bottom. I wasn’t at school; I had no friends and no career opportunities. I went to Youth Connections to see how they could help and they told me about FLO Connect. I was so excited about starting there. I met the staff and they were all so friendly. I made some great friends that I adore and even made relationships with the staff. I wanted to work in childcare and found out I had to have my year ten or equivalent so FLO Connect enrolled me into a short course that gives me my equivalent. It made me so happy. Now, only about a month later I’m studying childcare and I’m doing my Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care. I could not thank FLO Connect and Youth Connections enough for how much they have helped and supported me during my journey”

“I used to sit around the house and do nothing when I was expelled from school for almost two years. Once I was expelled from school I was referred to Youth Connections. They suggested that I come to FLO Connect. Since I have been here, I am doing Certificate I in Vocational Preparation. I have done an internship in retail at ‘Game Traders’. I don’t know at the moment what my future will be but I hope I will be rich and famous”
