Pathways to Employment is Inner North Community Foundation’s major annual grant round.
The Foundation aims to be adaptive to the evolving needs of the community. This year, the focus is on employment pathways for local people most disadvantaged by the impacts of Covid-19 in their access to employment. In particular, programs that deliver pre-vocational courses. This focus on employment pathways is shaped by our relationship with our founding and key ongoing sponsor, IntoWork, and a strong theory of change demonstrating the multiple benefits to community members that comes through workforce participation. In 2021, the Foundation will grant successful and eligible organisations up to $15,000 per organisation to Neighbourhood Houses and other charities that deliver pre-vocational courses to vulnerable groups most impacted by Covid-19 in the Inner North community.
