Streetsmart Handbook

The Streetsmart Handbook is a practical life guide for 16 and 17-year-old school leavers. It is designed to help prepare today's youth for life after school and given to Year 11 students through local high schools. The handbook offers information specific to the school leaver across a range of topics, including entering the workforce.
