Youth Services aim to assist young people who have left school, to continue with their education, training and/or employment. Individual case management may include motivation, problem solving, skill development, advocacy, mediation, assistance to access education training and employment services and where appropriate, referral to specialist support services.
Reconnect intensively supports early school leavers and long-term unemployed young people aged 15-24 to get into vocational education and training.
It provides flexible and highly tailored support to meet the individual needs of each young person, including support with learning and with broader needs.
Springboard intensively supports young people currently in or leaving residential and Lead Tenant out-of-home care by providing access, opportunities and support to education, training and/or employment pathways.
Reconnect and Springboard are funded by the Victorian Government.
