5 For example, recently in Lajamanu some of the children recognised the CLC logo on a staff members shirt. These kids immediately associated the logo with the ranger program and called out to the staff member that they wanted to be CLC Rangers one day. Conclusion Confining the role of a JSA merely to that of job finder in a mainstream way overlooks all the issues and barriers outlined above. This submission seeks to draw on the experience of CLC staff with respect to remote participation in order to outline the benefits of local understanding and an investment in relationships. Locally based organisations are best placed to posses such a level of understanding and to be capable of developing the required relationships. Any efforts to improve remote participation and employment servicing arrangements should acknowledge this fact.
