Access to Mentoring Program

paul

Break Thru’s Mentoring Program has supported countless job seekers into employment. By addressing employment from an alternative angle, we’re able to pull together a range of resources and supports to address the unique needs of our job seekers, like Indigenous customer, Paul.

Paul first came to Break Thru’s The Entrance site after experiencing long term unemployment. He was ready to find work and knew that a little support could go a long way.

Participating in the Access to Mentoring Program in February, Paul has now moved through the program to post placement support via his intensive mentoring support. Paul also participated in Break Thru’s interventions which included participating in Break Thru Cultural Strengths workshops, Pre-Employment programs and Intensive Group Job Search to name a few.

After completing the workshops, Paul had the skills and motivation to gain paid employment and believed he could achieve this.

Indigenous Mentor Samantha has worked closely with Paul to develop effective job seeking skills and assisting him to address non-vocational barriers to work.

Samantha worked collaboratively with Job Brokerage Consultant Jenny who has developed a strong relationship with the local McDonald’s. With a vacancy for Handyman/Cleaner, Jenny referred Paul after he indicated interest in the position.

McDonald’s knew they had the right person when meeting Paul and hired him straight away! He continues to thrive in the position and work environment. Feedback from Paul’s employers has likewise been overwhelmingly positive stating that he’s the ‘right fit’ for the employer.

Paul is incredibly grateful for the assistance provided by Samantha, Jenny and The Entrance office. The combination of the Mentoring Program and JSA services were exactly what Paul needed to find sustainable employment.
