Youth Assist

Youth Assist welcomes enquiries from individuals, businesses, services and community groups, and community organisations who would like to refer a young person to our programs or who would like to partner with us in providing opportunities to you people.

Youth Assist is a not for profit service engaged in supporting young people aged 12 – 24 to Build Better Lives.

We offer two unique, trauma-aware programs – “I’m Possible” and “The Me Degree”. Each program is designed to identify strengths, see opportunity, and overcome the invisible barriers which hold youth back from education, employment and entrepreneurship.

Our programs reflect our decades of experience supporting people across Hervey Bay, who have been impacted by trauma to build a new future. Evidence and experience sits at the core of these specialised, wrap around programs which are facilitated by trauma-informed counsellors and coaches.

Programs are free for participants, funded by the Australian Government Departments of Home Affairs (Industry, Science, Energy and Resources) and the Department of Social Services.

If you would like to learn more, become involved or contribute please contact us.
