The Indigenous Youth Mobility Program (IYMP) helps young Indigenous people move away from home to gain the skills they need to get a job in their community or elsewhere. Indigenous people aged 16 to 24 from remote areas can relocate to Canberra to undertake post secondary education and training options. Training options include Australian Apprenticeships, Vocational Education and Training (VET) and Higher Education that leads to qualifications in nursing, teaching, business administration and accounting, to name but a few possibilities. The Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) provides subsidised, supervised and supported accommodation in the ACT along with mentoring, career planning and numerous other support mechanisms so that young Indigenous people can achieve their goals.
