Team Baker at the Youth Inc. Golf Day 2019
Friday 18th October at the Kooyonga Golf Club (SA), our colleagues Travis Miegel (SA Sales Executive), Graham Bayne (SA Project Manager) and Phil Tindale (SA Service Manager) upheld the honour of Team Baker at the 2019 Youth Inc. Golf Day. Our SA Sheet Metal Specialist Matt Wilson also played with the team and he won the longest drive for the day.
Every year the event is a day of business networking and social fun that supports and engages the disadvantaged young people assisted by our partner Youth Inc., the foundation established by our SA partner Commercial Retail Group (CRG).
Youth Inc. is an independent, non-profit education organisation. They are formally registered as a School but that’s as close as they come to conventional learning. They offer a 12-month learning and employment program for long-term unemployed and disengaged youth aged 17-24.
This is a practical, real-world learning experience that combines part-time work with SACE & VET qualifications, life-coaching and support. It’s about developing enterprise skills for work, business, and a better future. They use a different approach to mainstream schools – a stronger emphasis on practical work and enterprise, and achieving formal qualifications using project-based action-learning in the local community.
