making things, better


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”.

Each time you purchase from us our team gets the chance to practice their work skills

Not sure what you want to do for work? Feeling a bit stuck, or unsure about your next step? Want to build more confidence?

Your vision of where or who you want to be is the greatest asset you have.

Troublesmiths online coaching will take you on a journey of self-discovery where you connect to your key strengths and design an inspiring life and career pathway plan that matches your vision and values.
