This week, another seven young people graduated from our Step Up Sydney program.

The young people accomplished so much over the last 9 weeks with independence, empowerment and health and wellbeing being a major focus for this particular group. Some of the young people volunteered their time facilitating art sessions at the local PCYC and participated in work experiences in the childcare and hospitality industries. Two became program mentors and supported new participants in their Ladder journey. It was so great to see the young people develop throughout the program.

We were so proud to see them receive their certificates in front of all their support networks throughout the Core program. Our Development Coaches facilitated games with the young people and their Caseworkers, Support workers and family members and we all came together for lunch after.

Following graduation, we were very excited to have a recent graduate become a new program mentor for the next program. Three other graduates also attended and assisted Ladder at a Youth Week Event recently.

We want to congratulate our young people for all their achievements throughout the program and we look forward to continuing to support them in their future endeavours.
