HITsa Charitable Fund Logo

At HITsa, we believe that every individual should be able to access quality training and development opportunities.

We have committed HITsa Charitable Fund to be our vehicle that drives this endeavour thanks to the support of our Directors Adrian and Leon.

Recently Julie and Olivia popped into the Women’s Community Centre SA, Stepney to meet Kala.

We were humbled by this small South Australian charity and its purpose to be “a Centre that nurtures resilience in women from every walk of life and enhances their strength to reach their full potential in their community”. The centre genuinely offers a welcoming space and a true sense of community and belonging.

Without any Government funding, the Centre offers a creative activities program that includes dance, craft, cooking, art, exercise. On site, Kala runs an op shop, offers affordable meals, and bags up fresh fruit and vegetables to give to those in need. Thoughtfully, these care-bags are accessible from the porch outside the Centre, allowing those who may not be ready for closer interaction to discreetly access fresh, healthy food. The Centre has more than 250 weekly users and 60 volunteers who assist.

The art and crafts on display in the Centre were stunning and we thoroughly enjoyed chatting with Lyn, a visitor to the Centre who was working on a weaving craft project.

Please visit Women’s Community Centre SA Facebook page – you will be as inspired as we are.

HITsa's Work Placement Coordinator

Jeanette is the Work Placement Coordinator for HITsa Training and Employment.

You will find her based at the HITsa Salisbury Site, you may have the pleasure of meeting her as she travels across our various sites to meet with students to discuss work placement requirements and opportunities.

Jeanette is at the forefront of our efforts to provide valuable work experiences for our students. Working closely with both our students and industry partners to facilitate placements that align with a students individual needs.

She has a passion for connecting students with meaningful work and empowers our students throughout their journey.  Jeanette says, “believe in yourself, your capabilities and don’t be afraid to ask questions - and it’s OK to be nervous”.

Most HITsa students undertaking a work placement are new to the industry but by the time they complete their placement, their confidence skyrockets!

It’s awesome hearing the stories and seeing the excitement when a student communicates that they have been given an offer of employment.
