Hopeworks Community Solutions
Hopeworks Community Solutions is a not-for-profit social enterprise that participates in the Cardinia Community Food Hub program, where the students will be contributing to packing the boxes of fresh produce for customers in the local area that are supplied straight from farmers. Additionally, they offer an e-waste program where the students participate in the dismantling and sorting of all items electrical, whether they are cables, old laptops and mobile phones, stereos and more! Each site (Lime Box Cafe and Hopeworks warehouse) operates in a fun, learning environment where tasks are rotated throughout the day so the students don’t become bored or anxious. They both run as social enterprises so that all of the activities that the students do take part of are contributing back to the community, which is a part of their learning and the way they participate in gaining employability skills.
