Anet Marinov – The Junction

Lifetime Achievement

Anet has been working in the sector for 26 years, yet remains humble, passionate and empathetic in her work. Anet’s passion for supporting young people has taken her through jobs with Bernardo’s, Canteen, Northside, Our Place, and The Junction, working with young people in homelessness, case work, health and health education. Anet has been in the game long enough to watch 15 year olds in desperate circumstances grow into 25 year olds ageing out of our services with qualifications, families, homes and employment. There are many clients Anet still works with at The Junction that she has built relationships with over decades of different support and services. She is able to help young people navigate this sector with the wisdom of many years watching it grow and change. Anet’s experience is invaluable at The Junction, where she is able to connect young people and staff with a range of services to provide wrap-around support. Most impressively, after 26 years in the field, Anet still approaches each day and each new young person with an incredible attitude and energy.
