Crown Casino, Victoria Police, the City of Melbourne and other public stakeholders today launched ReTale Melbourne, a new program for disadvantaged youths wanting to gain employment skills in retail and hospitality.

ReTale is designed for persons aged 16 to 25 who prefer to learn in a practical, non-school environment. The 12-week program includes police mentoring, a challenge camp, ongoing youth service intensive support, accredited training, work experience and work placement. At the conclusion of the program, participants will also receive up to five weeks of financial support or further training.

“ReTale Melbourne is a truly unique program that gives young disadvantaged people the chance to gain valuable skills in the retail and hospitality industry and improve their chances of full time employment,” said Inspector Chris Duthie of Victoria Police.

ReTale will be held twice yearly at the Centre for Adult Education at 21 Degraves Street, Melbourne. For enrolment enquiries, contact Cate Thompson on 03 9652 0636.
