Tara Hazel - Victorian Program Manager

Tara has spent her working career split between working with young people in Out of Home Care and pursuing a successful career in the arts as both an actor, acting coach and General Manager of an international acting studio. Tara has an unwavering and self-less passion for working with young people and finds immense joy in supporting young people to grow and achieve their goals.

Tara’s favourite memory at Ladder is an event last year where Ladder took young people from the Step Up Latrobe Valley Program to Gumbaya World. “I was so proud of the young people and the way that they engaged and grew throughout the program, overcoming countless obstacles amidst a global pandemic. The day at Gumbaya World represented so much for the young people, it was a celebration of everything that they had achieved, and a whole lot of fun!”
