Alicia - Senior Development Coach, Step Up Sydney

Alicia joined Ladder Step-Up Sydney in 2022 and has been a youth worker for 5 years in various roles. Alicia has worked across Sydney in Out of Home Care houses, youth homeless refuges and one-on-one with children through DCJ. Alicia's last role gave her the experience to learn in an intensive therapeutic environment working with young people with high trauma and behavioural needs.

Alicia’s passion lies in mentoring young people and coming alongside young people to help them recognise and achieve their goals in a therapeutic environment. Alicia believes in encouraging and teaching young people how to be independent and self-reliant. Alicia uses her past experiences and professional knowledge to adapt her approach to best suit the individual needs of the young people she works with.
