In 2020, Ladder launched the Ladder Step Up Schools program to assist schools to engage and retain students who are at-risk of disengaging from education.

A key element of the program is how Ladder works in partnership with the school community to support students to build positive connections with their peers and improve their skills in critical life domains.

This program was informed by Ladder’s work in the Latrobe Valley where it has had enormous success re-engaging young people into mainstream school settings.
