Youth Connections

The Youth Connections program provides a holistic approach to servicing young people at risk including support for individual young people and the broader community.

The Youth Connections program is available to eligible young people who are most at risk of disengaging, or who are already disengaged from education, family and/or the community.  The program offers flexible and individualised case management to young people to remain engaged or re-engage them with education and/or further training, and to improve their ability to make positive life choices.
