The Minister for Youth, Kate Ellis, today announced that the Australian Government will "reform its $618 million investment in transition programs to ensure that young Australians at risk of falling through the cracks get the support they need to get into training and work".

"From 1 January 2010, existing Australian Government youth, transitions and career programs will be restructured into two new initiatives targeted at supporting young people who need the most help to get a job." See media release cited below.
