YTM believes we can all make a difference. There are so many worthy causes and people keen to make an impact on the lives of others. Through YTM we have met and been inspired by the efforts of so many . Two in particular which we support are the not-for -profit organisations, Fitted For Work and START Foundation .
The old adage of “not what you know” but “who you know” certainly applies to networking. Many people are not fortunate to have a network or know how to tap into a network when seeking employment. This is certainly the case for many of the women at Fitted for Work who often come from other countries, and need help to find work that matches their skills and qualifications.
Your Time Matters helps where possible to open up our network and connect Fitted For Work with opportunities that may help transform the lives of the women they assist in various locations across Australia.
Leigh Powell is a Mentor for FFW, talk to him about the various ways you can assist them, as the skill sets and needs of the women seeking employment are varied . (www.fittedforwork.org.)
Our connection with the START Foundation, began through a YTM co working day. When we met Michelle Jelleff, Founding Director of START, and heard of the START foundation’s mission to provide grants for a new limb, limb modification or equipment modification, to enable Amputees to participate in sport to achieve their sporting dreams, we were inspired.
“Taking part in sport is a way of life for many Australians. Regardless of the level of Michelle Jelleff spoke at the 2017 YTM Dinner event .
AT YTM we believe networking can create a ripple effect having a positive impact on the lives of others. Take a few minutes to learn about the START Foundation and watch the video.
