What are the benefits of participating in Opportunity Pathways?
Participants have a dedicated case coordinator working with them to create a Training and Employment Housing Plan. The plan will include goals and activities that will assist you to achieve employment matched to your goals and aspirations. Once you are in employment, your case coordinator will continue to support you for a period of time to ensure you retain your employment.
The program can also provide practical financial assistance that can help you in achieving your work goals such as money towards obtaining a license, work tools and transport. You will also have access to attending available workshops and mentoring opportunities that can help with resume writing and developing interview skills.
