Empowering Young People Into Employment Success
Social Engine gives vulnerable young people the confidence, courage and opportunities to create a better future for themselves.
Social Engine exists to transform the lives of vulnerable young people. We do this by providing practical and relevant employment experience, paid work and ongoing support through our Youth Programs.
Our main focus is to improve the lives of young people by equipping them with the practical skills, confidence and opportunities required to transition into employment. We are also passionate about helping them develop the life skills needed for long term success.
Our Youth Programs
At Social Engine, we’re passionate about equipping young people with the skills they need to succeed in mainstream employment and thrive in life. Our Youth Programs are strategically designed to unlock the potential in our participants and help them succeed in the hospitality, warehousing, and logistics sectors.

Our ‘Brunch Time’ UberEats service brings delicious food and beverages right to your doorstep. These services allow us to focus on training young people in the art of hospitality and retail.
