Giving interns their time to shine

To help give our youth their time to shine, the Jewish Children's Aid Society (JCAS) has started a new mentorship program.

IN an ever-competitive working world it can be increasingly difficult for our youth to be given a chance to shine. To help them, the Jewish Children’s Aid Society (JCAS) has started a new mentorship program.

Copywriting intern Demi Kapul is one of several interns who are excited to be gaining valuable work experience. She said the newest endeavour by JCAS – Posh Opp Re-worked – gives a few lucky students the opportunity to gain industry experience in up-cycling old clothing to be sold in the Posh Opp Shoppe as one-off creations.

This initiative has been a dream come true for organiser and social media intern, Alex Szuster who explained, “I have always wanted to join the fashion world and have my own business. So Posh Opp Re-worked has become my little baby project and given me the chance to develop these skills.

“Now that we have three interns and four mentors, it’s the start of something incredible.”

The team is looking to take on a merchandising mentor and intern soon. Board member Melody Curtis said, “We are thrilled to be involved in this new initiative that will provide a great work experience program together with a social enterprise venture.”
