STREAT is a hospitality-based social enterprise that provides supported vocational training and holistic personal support to marginalised and disadvantaged young people in Melbourne. STREAT exists to make a difference to young people who face a range of barriers and disadvantage. We aim to provide a sense of connection, safety and belonging to our young people.
Our programs are open to marginalised, socially isolated or disadvantaged young people aged 16 to 25 who are in need of a supportive learning and work experience environment to get ready for work or study. We provide a compassionate and constructive social environment with new peers who are also keen to make positive change in their lives. Young people in our programs come from a diverse range of backgrounds and situations and generally face multiple barriers to work/training, including:
We offer young people a range of programs which can be completed individually or as a full pathway to gain more skills and confidence. All of our programs are client-centred, evidence based, integrated, flexible and are designed to wrap around a young person.
We want our young people to thrive in all parts of their lives. We want them to feel a sense of belonging at STREAT, and know deeply that we’re here to help them achieve a healthy self, healthy job and a healthy home.
Over the last few years we’ve built a full suite of programs which can be done individually or as a full pathway as young people gain more skills and confidence:
In a typical week at STREAT our Main Course trainees will be involved in a group-based life skills program, TAFE and getting their qualifications, work experience in any one of our cafes or production kitchen, group-based creative and social activities, or having individual support sessions with our Youth Program team (which might include working through major issues like housing, drug and alcohol abuse, mental health, legal). All programs are integrated, flexible and ‘wrap’ around a trainee.
The group-based life skills program has key modules on emotional management, problem solving, healthy relationships, communication, and conflict management. Working with our Youth Programs Team, trainees also develop their personal goals at the start of each program, and then a self-management plan which we use through-out their transition to open employment.
