This Social Enterprise Scheme, which is 100% sustainable, started as a one-year project to fundraise for Far North youth groups and is now in its third year offering work for individual youth, which for many is a first job. The work experience and skill gained along with work ethic is valuable for future employment such as teamwork, time management, communication, sub-contracting and basic health and safety requirements. Far North REAP offers further assistance such as compiling CVs, job applications and further study. Friendships are formed and networks established, as there are often a range of youth from different circles of life that form the Truck Washing team. A pool of funds raised from the scheme has been set aside for positive youth events held during National Youth week.
