The York CRC would like to thank our community for all the support that we have been given through 2018. We are well into 2019 bringing more training,fun,excitement and enpowerment to our town and we know that our community is right behind us all the way. We Love Our Community.

Training is the Key:

The York CRC had a distinguished guest visit us on Wednesday 23 January 2019.

Minister Alannah MacTiernan visited the York CRC after unveiling a new plan to open up trainee grant funding to 22 Local
Government Authorities that do not currently host CRC’s, giving those LGA’s the opportunity to train more rural community members with possible ‘trade’ skills for example: depot staff or parks & gardens staff.

We at the York CRC understand the need for more training in rural communities, and hope that if successful, any LGA’s on the list who do apply for these funds, utilise them to the full extent and uphold the training standards that the CRC Network has built.

The York CRC are now hosting our 11th trainee (Kate) and hope to introduce a new trainee as of March 2019. Once funding has been allocated, we will advertise accordingly, and encourage all unemployed, or school leavers who are looking to further their education to apply when the time comes.

The York CRC prides itself on being a family friendly work environment, where we strive to bring our community all it deserves with the funding we are afforded.

Trainee - Samantha

Trainee shines bright at Wheatbelt TAFE Awards

Photo credit:  Photographs Angie Roe Photography 2017

Former York Community Resource Centre trainee, Samantha Aurisch-Pike, has taken top honours at the recent Central Regional TAFE’s Trainee of the Year Award for the Wheatbelt region.
Samantha joined the CRC as a trainee in March 2016 to study a Certificate III course in Business Administration.  The course when studied part-time should take up to eighteen months to complete however Samantha’s dedication resulted in her completing the course in only six months, and a nomination for the awards from her Central Regional Tafe lecturer, Sue Byfield.
Traineeships are an economic development activity highly regarded by the York CRC and the WA Community Resource Network as a whole. During the course of the traineeship, trainees receive support and mentoring from Centre Coordinators and other supervising staff in the workplace and learn valuable skills and competencies. Some trainees at the CRC have also been sponsored to join a week long sail on the STS Leeuwin II Sailing Ship to help them build communication, leadership and teamwork skills. Traineeships are offered to successful candidates wishing to study a certificate course in Business or other relevant course that meets the trainee’s future career goals.
With a successful placement into a new position and career in the field of accounting, Samantha may well have much more training ahead of her, however, her future certainly looks bright.

Thank you to everyone who supported our Think Pink Walk for Breast Cancer Awareness on Friday 4 November. It was a really fun morning with informative and inspiring speakers.

Our main street mosaic art project is well underway with small sections being put up everyday this week.  We are very lucky to have such talented artists in York who are very generous with their time. The border tiles have been made by 2015 Year 6 classes from York District High School. Looking forward to the end product.
