BUSY At Work Community Services develop initiatives to assist communities who may be facing barriers with gaining employment. These community projects assist people to learn self awareness, life and social skills, plus job preparation and employment expectations. They also receive mentoring and expert career advice, all while developing life skills that many of us take for granted. Some of our current projects include:
