Empowering Ballarat Individuals: How WDEA Works Foundation’s Grant Supports the Ballarat community BGT’s ‘Styled for Success’ Initiative
WDEA Works Foundation and Ballarat Group Training (BGT) have joined hands to support the “Styled for Success” initiative, which offers free services to individuals facing job interview rejections, long-term unemployment, homelessness, or mental illness. Through its Community Foundation Grants, the WDEA Works Foundation is providing financial assistance to community projects and initiatives like BGT’s “Styled for Success” that empower individuals and help them overcome challenges on their path to success.
The WDEA Works Foundation’s Community Grant has enabled BGT to set up a dedicated warehouse for the “Styled for Success” program. The warehouse includes changing rooms where clients can try on their new outfits and feel comfortable and confident in their choices. The grant also allowed for the order of new carpet, which will soon be installed, enhancing the overall experience for program participants.
Andrea Hogan, Director of Communications and Engagement at WDEA Works, said, “WDEA Works firmly believes in the power of community and the importance of empowering individuals to reach their full potential. We are committed to making a positive impact in the lives of individuals in the Ballarat community, and we believe in the value of initiatives like ‘Styled for Success’.”
