Module 3. Decision-Making & Things to Consider

The ‘Invest In Me’ process is intended as both a learning opportunity for the young person, but also aids the Transition Coach to have an objective and consistent approach to funding. Invest In Me is more structured rather than a discretionary approach to funding and is further intended to support equity for all young people accessing funding through Home Stretch WA.

The video below is of a young person who participated in Home Stretch WA and was supported by their coach to access Invest In Me Funds, as well as chuck-in their own funds when they could afford it. They talk about what that meant for them.
