About Job Pathways

Job Pathways is a not-for-profit community development company owned in partnership by two well respected Aboriginal organisations – Wunan Foundation and KREAC.

Our organisation was established in 2013 to deliver the Federal Government’s Community Development Program across the broader East Kimberley and Halls Creek/Tjurabalan Regions.

Our objectives include –

  • Providing and promoting avenues to education, training, employment and business creation opportunities for unemployed people;
  • Tailoring employment solutions to our key business and industry groups;
    Working with communities to improve social cohesion and advance ongoing community growth and development;
  • Supporting the maintenance and protection of Aboriginal culture and traditions;
  • Advising people in our region in relation to support services available and facilitating advocacy on their behalf; and

In December 2018, Job Pathways achieved certification against ISO:9001 Quality Management Systems. This is a tremendous achievement for a remote Aboriginal organisation and ensures our systems, processes and people are robust enough to withstand changes to our services, and to unearth and develop the opportunities changes present.

Our future is guided by strategically maximising business opportunities and partnerships, which align with our vision, and by remaining competitive and relevant in the marketplace. We will achieve this by continuing to pay an active role in facilitating partnerships between our communities, governments and the not-for-profit and private sectors to work together on opportunities which empower people through employment.

Central to our future is our determination to strive for sustained outcomes for Aboriginal people in our region through our core belief that local people must be engaged in the process – not only as recipients of services and/or initiatives – but as principal participants at all levels.

Our Vision

All people in the East Kimberley will have the capability and opportunity to get a job

Our Mission

By creating employment pathways we assist and empower people to achieve their potential through meaningful work and contribute positively to the communities in which they live.

Our People

Nothing is so warm and inviting, yet so challenging and moving, as a powerful story, told well. Stories are written to be shared, not only for our benefit, but for the benefit of our people and our communities. Stories change people and shape who we are.
