Empowering Young People Into Employment Success

Social Engine gives vulnerable young people the confidence, courage and opportunities to create a better future for themselves. 


Our Mission

We exist to change lives through providing work experience and support that enables vulnerable young people to secure mainstream employment.

Our primary purpose is to improve the lives of young people by equipping them with the practical skills, confidence and employment opportunities whilst helping them develop the life skills needed for long term success.

We do this by providing practical and relevant employment experience, paid work and ongoing support in our social enterprises.



 Our Services

Social Engine is a unique and multi-faceted social enterprise in Melbourne.  We provide employment pathways into the hospitality, warehouse and logistics industries. As a social enterprise, our focus is purpose over profit. All our profits are reinvested to provide jobs and support for vulnerable young people.

 Logistics & Warehousing

Social Engine Logistics provides comprehensive services, operating within a 6500 sqm ISO9001 accredited warehouse in Dandenong South. We specialise in delivering the smaller, fiddly batch jobs that larger co-packers and warehousing companies avoid.

These services allow us to provide our participants with training in logistics and warehousing.
