The Mentoring 2 Work program works by matching young adults with mature mentors who have strong workplace connections.

Mentoring sessions run weekly over six months, coinciding with a Learning and Support Pathways Approach. The project employs a partnership model to support the individual strengths of each participant and overcome the barriers and challenges faced by young adults in attaining and maintaining employment.

COTA WA uses its vast reach cultivated from over 60 years, as the lead agency for the project in partnership with employers and community services to maximise the chances of the young people gaining and sustaining employment.
