Youth Boost for regional employers

The Queensland Government has extended the popular Youth Boost initiative. Funding of up to $20,000 is available to eligible employers who hire a young unemployed person aged between 15 and 24 years until 31 October 2017.

Youth Boost is just one of the Employer Support Payments that is available through the government’s two-year $100 million Back to Work program, which encourages employers to employ long-term unemployed, young people, older Queenslanders, people with a disability and Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people in regional Queensland.

Visit the Back to Work website for eligibility criteria and information on how to apply, or call 13QGOV (13 74 68).
