Empowering people and their communities
Education, employment and training have always been fundamental to Bamara’s commitment to helping local communities prosper, we’re able to grow our programs and services in the jobs and employment sector to help further people achieve economic independence.
ParentsNext is a government pre-employment program that supports parents and carers who receive Parenting Payments as they navigate and prepare for the next stage in their career or education.
At Bamara, we understand that everything you do is for your kids but balancing work and family life can be difficult.
ParentsNext provides support and resources to help you build your confidence and skills.
Dubbo Opportunity Hub
Dubbo Opportunity Hub (DHUB) is a program of support that works closely with the schools in Dubbo and Wellington to build the confidence and knowledge of Aboriginal students to achieve their desired career pathway.
DHUB is a whole community approach. We create links between schools, employers, training providers, support services and Aboriginal communities and work in partnership to find and create opportunities.
We also partner with schools to add value to relevant existing programs or initiatives. In-school sessions focus on aspiration building, career pathway planning and setting up young people for successful and fulfilling employment.
Driver Licensing Access Program
The Driver Licensing Access Program (DLAP) is a free learning to drive program.
It makes getting your driver licence accessible for community groups that may have difficulty due to employment, education, family, training, or lack of support.
We teach you all the driving basics so you can get your driver licence. If you have previously had a licence but lost it, we can help you regain your licence and resolve any debt.
