As part of their training, job seekers learn to operate different machinery including bobcats, tractor, and backhoe/loader in a safe environment.

CDP Supervisor, Noel Galarla said that last year the men worked on construction projects including the Women’s Centre and community BBQ shelters. They also worked around the community, collecting hard rubbish and cleaning up people’s yards.
