Tech skills for NDIS participants

We offer personalised, one-on-one tech skills training for NDIS participants, taught by friendly local Youngsters. Examples of skills that NDIS participants can learn include:

  • Using video calls to connect regularly with friends and family.
  • Booking appointments online and attending telehealth appointments.
  • Using social media and the internet to find local events and groups for community pariticipation.
  • Searching for jobs online, creating a LinkedIn profile and formatting a CV.

With so many essential services moving online, basic tech skills are now essential for participating in daily life. Our service falls under Capacity Building supports for Development of Daily Living and Life Skils.

Youngsters can also do home tech support for NDIS pariticipants. Whether it’s setting up the smart TV, or working out the timer on the microwave, we’ve got it covered!

Life skills for Youngsters

At Youngster we create jobs for young people who need them, and give them an opportunity to learn important life skills.

Do you know any young tech savvy NDIS participants? They can become a Youngster. As a Youngster they’ll have a job where they get paid to make a difference while gaining valuable experience and skills. They’ll help other people with tech, including providing companionship and connection for seniors.

We’re a certified social enterprise – 50% of our profits go to creating jobs for young people who need them, and running free community tech help sessions.
