In May 2015, All Things Finance began an exciting journey. For the first time ever, we reached out to our community- our incredible, dynamic supporters across all different sectors and demographics- to make a vision a reality. We launched and completed a successful crowd-funding campaign, with the generous support of ING Direct and StartSomeGood as part of their Dreamstarter program.
We want to launch the All Things Finance Business College in 2017, as an earning and learning environment that can offer professional, industry-recognised training to youth, job-seekers, those looking for a career change or a chance to consolidate their skill-set in the accounting industry. This College would be co-located with our social enterprise All Things Finance, a comprehensive and affordable accounting, taxation and book-keeping firm which drives all it’s revenue back into Youthconnections.com.au. The advantage of this professional workplace environment is that students have the opportunity to access genuine and sustained work-placements and immerse themselves in a professional work culture. Following the successful completion of their diploma in Accounting, 50% of graduates will be guaranteed employment. This is an incredible employment outcome, which can kick-start a thriving career in Finance.
But to make it happen, we need support. We crowd-funded to raise the money necessary to fully equip our Registered Training Organisation to administer the training; meaning that we will have autonomy over the course, can write relevant and community-based content, ensure the class structure is small, personalised and effective and keep the costs for participants lower.
Thanks to YOU, we reached our target for the All Things Finance Business College and exceeded it, with a grand total of $11,125! What an amazing example of what we can achieve when we unite under a common goal. Our community believes in the power of youth and job-seekers to change the trajectories of their lives. Our community believes in making your vision big and biodynamic, so that the impact you create makes a real difference. We are proud to be supported by such advocates for fair, equitable opportunity in our region.
