Melanie Azzopardi

Youth Worker

Qualifications: Cert IV in youth work and mental health first aid


7 years working in the youth work sector and working within the education department


It’s time to come back to where I belong! I first worked for Open House in 2017 as a part of the youth team. I was involved in the YWMP, BYS, Playgroup, School Holiday Program and was part of organising our Coffee Cart.
After a couple of years, I decided to take on a new challenge and go into the school system. I worked as a Youth Worker at a school in Point Cook and as the Wellbeing Coordinator in Eynesbury. In 2021 I had my beautiful daughter, Lily and everything changed. I wanted to have more work life balance and wanted to do work that was more fulfilling and closer to home.
I reached out to Paul Burgess and was welcomed back with open arms! I am so happy to be back at Open House 🙂
