TRY Build and the Noble Park Information Hub

Jawad - TRYBUILD Student

I’m from Afghanistan. I came to Australia two years ago as a refugee. The things that I learn in here I never had them before.

[Vision: Students measuring, cutting timber, making frame, building]

I’m measuring, cutting the timber, how to make the frame, anything involved in the construction.

[Vision: Jawad speaking]

This will help me to find the work in future.

Bill - TRY Australia - Director - Social Enterprises

TRY Build is one of TRY’s social enterprises. Its predominant focus is to provide young disadvantaged, disengaged youth, with building construction training.

On this particular project they’ve taken ownership and they’re putting their name to it.

Jordan - TRYBUILD Student

Like 10 years from now I will be like so happy with it still.

[Vision: Infohub]

I could just tell people like I did that.

[Vision: Students learning construction - students in workshop - students building]

We’re very, very appreciative of organisations such as the Level Crossing Removal Project because they’ve actually given us the opportunity to have these kids participating in something that raises their self-esteem.

[Vision: Workshop - Students]

And to see the changes in the behaviour of these kids, the confidence in these kids is priceless.

[Vision: Bill speaking]

This project has given a lot of these kids another chance at life.
