Empowered for Employment (2022 program dates to be confirmed)
Women who have experienced family and domestic violence face considerable challenges including lower health outcomes, financial instability, and an increased risk of homelessness. In fact, an average of over 80,500 Australian women a year are assisted by specialist homelessness agencies due to family and domestic violence issues.
You can support women who have experienced family domestic violence by becoming a Mentor in our Empowered for Employment program. Assist us in preparing women to enter or re-enter the workforce, increasing their confidence and supporting their financial stability.
We are excited to announce the launch of this exciting new program in conjunction with Melaleuca Remand and Reintegration Facility. The aim is to support women who are exiting the prison system to explore their hopes, dreams, and pathways to the future, and gain work experiences or volunteer opportunities.
We are looking for volunteers to provide 1:1 mentoring, in a walk alongside approach, breaking down social barriers for the participant, over a three-month period.
For more information or to become a mentor please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
