Ladder has partnered with Barwon Child Youth and Family Services to deliver the Empower Youth Program to young people aged 16-25 in the Greater Geelong and Barwon regions.

This program aims to assist young people who are chronically disengaged from forms of education/training and employment into appropriate and purposeful education/training pathways as part of their developed aspirational plans.

The program also aims to provide learning opportunities in the areas of health and wellbeing and provide opportunities for young people to develop personal confidence and self-esteem through physical activity and engagement with the AFL Industry.
