About The Clubhouse
Part of an International Network of almost 100 Clubhouses in 19 countries worldwide, our Lismore based Clubhouse is the ONLY Clubhouse in regional Australia and one of only four in the country.
The Clubhouse delivers a free safe and creative after school space for young people, where mentors work to help them to explore their own ideas, develop skills, and build confidence through the use of technology.
Our Clubhouse encourages young people to think more positively and ambitiously about their futures. It has a positive impact upon attitudes to school, furthering education, and studying STEAM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics and Music).
We want our young people to reach their potential – can you help us?
You can commit to as little as 3 hours a week for six months as a Clubhouse Mentor (or by arrangement).

Youth Jobs PaTH is an Australian Government initiative to support young people to gain the skills and work experience they need to get and keep a job. It includes an internship work placement plus financial incentives for businesses to hire eligible young people.
Employers benefit because they get to see firsthand how a potential new recruit is going to fit in your workplace, during a 4-12 week internship placement. They may also receive up to $10,000 in financial assistance when they hire an eligible young person.
You may have heard of the Australian Government’s Youth Jobs PaTH internship program but are not confident this is right for you? Or perhaps you have never even heard of this program?
ETC has some helpful information for you. ETC interviewed a small business owner who trialled the PaTH program which had many benefits for his business. Read about it on the ETC Blog >
Transition to Work is a funded program for 15 – 21 year olds who are disengaged from employment or education.
Up to 70% of Enterprise & Training Company’s caseload comes from Centrelink however there is the option to directly register young people that meet eligibility and this is not reliant on the young person being attached to Centrelink.
The eligibility is different depending on the level of schooling however as a general rule if completed year 10, disengaged for 3 months and completed year 12 disengaged for 6 months. However, program officers are able to use discretion in some cases so if attendance hasn’t been great but they are not entirely disengaged please call anyway.
There is at least 1 dedicated Youth Advisor that works at each ECT site as well as the region having a Business Advisor (talking to employers) and Youth Workshop Facilitators (running internal courses addressing barriers).
We are in our 5th year presenting the Young NAIDOC event, which celebrates and builds leadership, confidence and resilience in Indigenous youth!
NAIDOC Week highlights the rich and diverse culture of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples – the First Australians. This year’s theme – Our Languages Matter – aims to emphasise & celebrate the unique and essential role that Indigenous languages play in cultural identity.
We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land where we live & work & their continuing connection to land, water, sea & community. We pay our respects to Australia’s First Peoples; to their unique & diverse cultures, and to Elders past, present & future.
