What makes us a Social Enterprise?

We trade to intentionally address and tackle social deficiencies, improve communities and provide young people (aged 17 to 25) across Geelong with access to employment and training.

Our profits are reinvested back into My Maintenance Crew to provide ongoing benefits to the public and community, rather than being distributed to owners and shareholders.

Social Procurement is simply buying from a social enterprise.

The power of buying socially means that every time goods and services are bought from a social enterprise, positive social change is also created. Buying from social enterprises is something that can be done by government, business and consumers through responsible purchasing.

What does that mean for you?

Having your services provided by My Maintenance Crew certainly has the ‘feel good’ factor!

You are helping to break the cycle of disadvantage and create positive social change.  This provides you with:

  • An excellent PR opportunity
  • Increased corporate social responsibility
  • Contributing to a better community
  • Fostering a brighter future for young people in Geelong

How do we do it?

We focus on developing work and life skills in Geelong’s young people, aged 17-25, through mentoring, internships and genuine employment opportunities.

We focus on building work readiness skills, both personal and professional, including:

  • Being a valuable team member
  • Building workplace resilience
  • Communication skills
  • Responsibility & Reliability
  • Health and Hygiene
  • OH&S and implications in the workplace
  • Goal setting
  • Job interview skills and techniques
  • Resume preparation
  • Skill development
  • Financial independence
  • Building self-esteem
  • Strengthening links within communities
  • Developing a sense of pride, value and belonging

How did we start?

My Maintenance Crew was established in 2018, as a social enterprise arm of Diversitat, through the Try Test and Learn funding provided by DSS (Department of Social Services) to tackle long term unemployment and welfare dependence.

Diversitat is a registered charity and not-for-profit community organisation with a long history of caring and supporting their local community.  Diversitat offers a range of settlement services for new migrants, community programs, aged support services for older people from CALD backgrounds, services for young people, training and education, arts and events including Pako Festa, and a number of enterprises including My Maintenance Crew.
