AN ORGANISATION is trying to reduce youth unemployment and crime in western Sydney by inspiring high school students to realise their potential.
David Saliba and his friends created Youth Pathways Network in 2013 to engage with high school students and host sessions on careers, tertiary study, leadership, teamwork, job interviews, volunteering and communication.
They are hosting free seminars focusing on extended response exam sections for HSC economics, and business and legal studies from 9.30am on Saturday at Fairfield RSL.
Mr Saliba, who completed his HSC in 2012 at Patrician Brothers in Fairfield, will lead the seminar with Macquarie Capital vice president Daniel Brescia, human resources professional Sandy Esho, marketing manager Joanne Varcoe, barrister and academic Jason Donnelly, and barrister Sebastian De Brennan.
