youth for a bright future
Juggling the final year of high school, two after-school jobs, a Certificate II in Business, a school-based traineeship and a local Aboriginal school-to-work transition program, young Indigenous Australian woman Talia Trimboli is seizing every opportunity that comes her way.
Talia is one of 15 Aboriginal students participating in Ganbina’s Youth Leadership Program in Shepparton, Victoria. ANZ is a financial supporter and corporate partner of Ganbina.
The program, which identifies Aboriginal youth who have the potential to be leaders within their community, helps them unlock their full potential by keeping them engaged in education, training and employment.
Talia is also undertaking a school-based traineeship with ANZ in Shepparton. Her favourite part of the traineeship has been developing her customer service and communications skills, as well as the relationships she has formed with her colleagues at the branch.
“Out of all the skills I’m learning, I enjoy developing my customer service skills the most because I really enjoy talking to the people who come into the bank,” says Tahlia.
