'Make it Possible' Rural and Regional Inspiration Hub

So, you have finished those exams, taken that gap year or are ready for the workforce…There are so many things to take into consideration.
You may feel a lot of pressure, and the need to make some pretty big choices. The biggest ones could be what will I do once I’ve finished school? and I’ve had a gap year or a few, now what? And there are so many options, it can be hard to know which one will be best for you. University? Apprenticeship? Gap year? Or, do you just jump straight into the workforce?
If you are from rural and regional Australia, there is even more to think about. How will you manage financially? How far will you need to move away from home? Do you feel like you need to stay home to help the folks out?
The Rural and Regional Inspiration Hub is designed to get you thinking, inspire and guide you. It can also help you navigate these and many other questions and Make it Possible.
