The Wingspan Project is a training and employment initiative that helps young people facing disadvantage to take control of their lives. Based in Bondi Beach, The Wingspan Project is delivered by Wayside Chapel.
Wingspan creates person-centred employment pathways that allow young people who have faced barriers to employment to build their confidence and self-esteem; to become work-ready in the practical and supportive workplaces of its social enterprises; and to then transition into meaningful jobs within a network of supportive mainstream employers.
A key element of The Wingspan Project is work experience and employment within Wayside’s own social enterprises Heart Cafe and Wayside Chapel Op Shop. These two social enterprises go far beyond serving quality coffee, healthy food and providing ethical, affordable fashion. Whilst Wingspan participants receive employment and on-the-job training within a supportive workplace, customers can feel good knowing that every dollar spent goes straight back into The Wingspan Project.
