CYE has a hosting arrangement with the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) to run the Shady Place for Men in Aurukun.

The Shady Place provides an opportunity for male jobseekers to work with CYE and RFDS staff in overcoming social and other barriers to work.

Every day, a CYE staff member visits the jobseekers to talk with them about potential employment opportunities within Aurukun.

CYE staff also mentor jobseekers with a view to improving their overall wellbeing and confidence, and provide materials to support work-readiness activities, which assists in preparing jobseekers for future employment.
