Ladder Step Up Latrobe Valley

The Ladder Step Up Latrobe Valley program helps young people build on their strengths and explore different jobs and industries.

In the six-week program, young people will learn from those in the AFL industry about how to get the best out of themselves and secure a job that they aspire to. Young people will participate in individual and group development sessions, group camps, community projects and have work experience opportunities.

In addition to the support young people will receive from a Ladder Development Coach, they will also have the option to be mentored by someone who is a leader in their field.
