Francesca Pellizzari

Case and Services Coordinator

I believe that if you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life. I love my job as a Coordinator within the Youth Reconnect Program.

My work mostly focuses on case management with young people aged 12 – 21 years, from migrant and refugee backgrounds, who are at risk of homelessness.

Before becoming a Coordinator, I worked as a Support Worker with Melaleuca’s Connecting Experience program. This program aims to help international students in Darwin by improving their wellbeing through experiences. In my spare time, I’m passionate about the community volunteer work I’m involved in. It’s so satisfying to engage with people and find ways to support them.

One day I hope to live in a world that treats people equally and youth are given fair opportunities to better their lives.
