Police, social workers and McDonalds restaurants have teamed up to get local teens into work.
The latest training course from Project Booyah is helping youth from a disadvantaged background learn skills, such as customer service.
It’s helped 15 year old Talia Mitchell turn away from crime and head towards a career in engineering.
“My mum and stuff like that have had a very rough past and I’ve overcome that during this course and it’s made me very happy and yes I have been in trouble with the law but I said when I entered this course, I left that behind me” said Talia.
The life changing efforts of Project Booyah have just been recognised with a Premier’s Industry Collaboration Award.
