Ms Deborah Homewood, Mr Bert Van Manen MP, the Hon. Luke Hartsuyker MP and Ms Tracy Adams officially open the MAX and BoysTown Beenleigh site.

The Hon. Luke Hartsuyker MP was accompanied by Federal Member for Forde Mr Bert Van Manen MP, MAX Employment Managing Director Deborah Homewood and BoysTown CEO Tracy Adams to the launch of the MAX Employment and BoysTown Beenleigh site. During the launch, the Minister presented site staff and local employers with a plaque to commemorate the opening, along with $1,000 donation to local charity the Logan House Fire Support Network.

MAX Employment Managing Director Deborah Homewood said staff and employers were thrilled to welcome the Minister to showcase the site with its new and innovative technology, which greatly increases job seekers opportunities of finding and sustaining employment.

“The opening provided an opportunity for the Minister to see the brand new, collaborative and innovative way we are supporting local businesses and job seekers with employment.

“Minister Hartsuyker spoke to employers that have helped job seekers find and maintain meaningful employment, and saw first-hand the benefits of our newly established partnership with youth employment specialist BoysTown,” Ms Homewood said.

BoysTown CEO Tracy Adams said the partnership allowed for specialist youth employment services to be delivered in areas experiencing high youth unemployment rates such as the Logan area.

“The partnership with MAX Employment is an exciting development in pursuing our goal of supporting disadvantaged youth with a strong emphasis on future employability and life skills.

“Every young person deserves the chance to turn their lives around, no matter what their history. Our training and employment programs are about making a real difference and giving participants both strong employability and life skills and that vital extra support into their first jobs,”
Ms Adams said.

Local charity, the Logan House Fire Support Network, was thrilled to have their $1,000 donation presented to them by Minister Hartsuyker and Mr Van Manen.

We’re extremely grateful for this donation. It will go a long way to providing essential items to victims of house fires, not only in the Logan community, but across Queensland,” said charity founder Louie Naumovski.

Minister Hartsuyker and Mr Van Manen concluded the day by thanking the local employers and community organisations for providing opportunities for job seekers to transition back into work. He also thanked MAX Employment and BoysTown Beenleigh for their commitment and ongoing support to job seekers, employers and the broader community.
