Young people banded together to create a colourful mural on display at the Brophy Youth and Family Complex.
The piece was completed by the Transition 2 Work participants and artist Meghan Nicholson through Brophy's experiential learning program SPARK.
Brophy youth project worker Bianca O'Keefe said the program aimed at developing new skills and pathways to work and study, and 'spark' connections and networks within our community.
"During summer period I find it difficult to get young people together for group work so we began these short sharp two-hour workshops called hotspot," she said.
"In the second hour the participants co-design what they want to do and they came up with an art exercise.
"I got into contact with Meghan Nicholson who came and co-designed the piece with the young people.
"Together they decided what the look and feel and what medium to use."
Throughout three one-hour sessions at the end of January, the five young people completed the vibrant mural on a Brophy wall backing onto the Timor Street car park.
Brophy runs Transition 2 Work in Warrnambool, Colac, Portland and Hamilton and is year-round program funded by the federal government to help young people be job active.
"We coach young people on what they would like to do in their careers; encompassing their skills and dreams and linking in with services," Ms O'Keefe said.
"It's a soft, beautiful approach to employment."
