The 12-week program delivered by Wan-Yaari involved 10 Indigenous job seekers from the Barwon region, who graduated yesterday during NAIDOC Week.

The program has provided a holistic approach and covered varying topics including: cultural strengthening and well-being, personal development, and preparing participants for employment.

Participants have also received one-on-one mentoring throughout the weekly program. MatchWorks will continue to market the job seekers and assist them in their journey to find meaningful and ongoing employment.

Wan-Yaari are also delivering a pre-employment program at the Warrnambool MatchWorks site for Indigenous job seekers in the South Coast region.
