Hume Youth Commitment - HYC

 

BACKGROUND

​The concept of the Hume Youth Commitment (HYC) was developed by the HWLLEN as a strategic response to the diversity of approaches to employment and youth transition in the City of Hume in 2007. The formation of the HYC came from a shared concern by various organisations in the City of Hume to combine resources and efforts to ensure real change for the benefit of young people.


In 2018 the Hume Youth Commitment is celebrating its 10 year anniversary. Today the HYC is a partnership of schools, industry, education and community providers, committed to providing all young people with the opportunity and support to complete Year 12 or its equivalent; to implement strategies that promote seamless transitions throughout their schooling and to further education or employment.

 

The HYC is the strategic network that tackles emerging youth issues in Hume and Tangible Connections (which is part of HYC) is the grassroots network, where youth practitioners get to share their program information, network and participate in professional development.

 
The HYC aims to engage the community to provide real and diverse education and employment opportunities for the young people of Hume to ensure:

  • Young people are well informed about the full range of local education and employment opportunities

  • More young people complete school and/or post school training

  • All of our community reach out to young people and help them negotiate their next step

  • Skilled young people are working in local industries and replacing our ageing workforce

  • Our community has lower youth unemployment

  • Our community has lower crime rates involving young people

  • Our local community works together for the good of our young people

 

HYC LEADERSHIP GROUP

The HYC Leadership Group - looks at setting the HYC Agenda, ways HYC responds to community issues and at present how partners connect with each other.

MIDDLE YEARS IN HUME

Since 2010 the HYC has been collaborating with partners to ensure parents and their children receive continuous support as they transition from primary to secondary school; young people remain engaged in education; and parental engagement is maintained at the secondary school level.

The collaboration has produced:

  • In Transit from Primary to Secondary School DVD resource (2011)

  • Middle Years Symposiums and Reports (available on the HWLLEN website)

  • A myriad of other resources

 

Middle Years and successful transition from primary school to secondary school still remains a priority of the HYC.

TANGIBLE CONNECTIONS

Tangible Connections is the grass roots networking forum part of the HYC.  Administration is delivered by HWLLEN in partnership with Hume City Council.  There are over 600 members on the Tangible Connections email list.
