Young People, Bright Futures

We are a community focused, not-for-profit organisation servicing Newcastle and Lake Macquarie. Operating since 2000, we manage and facilitate a range of programs and initiatives which connect young people with business, education, community and families. We help to create links and opportunities for young people to be their best.

Our Vision

Our vision is to link young people with opportunities to be their best.

We do this by providing services, programs and events through partnerships with

  • the education sector
  • business
  • families
  • the community


In 2017 Career Links launched a new website, Youth Links, to assist the young people of the Newcastle and Hunter Region. It provides quick access to relevent information and links youth to local, national and international buisnesses, programs and organisations to help them make informed decisions to create a brighter future.


The Workplace Learning Network (WLN) is the unified body of 15 separate youth focused organisations across NSW. The WLN members are locals, engaging local employers, education providers, communities, youth services organisations, young people and their families. Together the WLN service all senior schools, from the cities to the most remote locations in NSW.
