everytime you make a purchase, a young person gets to practice their work skills

In recognition of the deep history and culture of this Island, we would like to acknowledge and pay our respects to all Tasmanian Aboriginal people; the past and present Custodians of the Land upon which we meet/gather.


With our current round of Smiths graduating we are on the lookout for our next bunch of amazing youth!

Come join us for 10 weeks with the Troublesmiths Shop, learn some handy new skills and set yourself up for the future.

do you remember your first job?

We all have to start somewhere. Often, starting out can be a challenge.
It is common for young people to get stuck in the cycle of
“I need experience to get a job, but I need a job to get experience”.

We are a youth social enterprise powered by hard work and positivity.
We specialise in personal growth, work experience and making.  
Our team is made up of young Tasmanians who are at risk of long term unemployment; but have taken their futures into their own hands.

Often, our Troublesmiths are misjudged and labelled as troublesome, misfits, or ‘dolebludgers’ (that old chestnut). But instead, we see potential. We see dreams, and aspiration, and human beings with unique talents who just want to catch a break.

Our Troublesmiths work hard at overcoming their troubles
and proudly say, “despite the odds through my hard work, I made it”.
