Youth Employment Scheme
The Youth Employment Scheme (YES) offers Victorians aged 15 to 24 paid work experience to develop skills and gain qualifications that can lead to ongoing employment.
Doing a YES traineeship lets you:
- get real experience in a real job
- learn valuable new skills
- meet inspiring mentors
- gain the confidence you need to get on a career path.
There is a range of positions available across Victoria in a range of industries.
