Redwoods Work Collaborative are exploring collaborative funding models – where you can pay, you are contributing to sustainability of the project – where you need assistance, funding sources can be negotiated.

Our team and partners work together to support young people to thrive, be happy and contribute their unique strengths and abilities. A collaborative approach is required for a sustainable and equitable future.

Work experience project

Navigating (self)Employment CoLab

A collaboration project that offers work-related experience with the support of peers and connections.

Starting with exercises to explore your strengths and potential, you will then create a work plan and project.

By the end of the CoLab you will have:

  • Tools, connections and resources to plan toward meaningful work;
  • A good understanding of workplace rights, value and expectations in business and the work environment; and
  • Confidence in seeking out mentors and connections to help you achieve your work goals.

    I have worked with Tania on multiple youth, multicultural and community projects through the formative years of my career. Tania was and continues to be, an amazing support person for me in my personal and professional growth. She is dedicated to career development and training, and has an amazing insight into how individuals navigate experiences and absorb information, making her an incredible asset in networking and training. She is supportive, engaging, committed, and most importantly, passionate. I absolutely trust in every endeavour Tania takes, and look forward to seeing the real value and growth that she creates in communities and in individuals through Redwoods Work Collaborative!

    I had the pleasure of working with Tania on a local youth committee. Her ability to build meaningful relationships and aptitude for collaborative networking allowed her to bring my ideas to life, empowering me to see the difference young people can make in the community. Tania has an admirable passion for encouraging others to grow, and then creating development opportunities to enable this. Working with Tania helped equip me with the communication and networking skills I needed to secure my first industry work experience. I have no doubt that Redwoods Work Collaborative will allow many others to benefit from Tania’s incredible skillset like I have!
