“Our youth workers are awesome, skilled, committed and caring – as well as being a little bit crazy!” NEM, Outwest Youth Director


We believe in strength-based youth work. 

Our youth workers are skilled at building empowering relationships that strengthen a young person’s sense of identity and value.  Through strength-based programmes, young people find the courage and resources to resist the risk factors in their lives and embrace behaviours that lead to positive outcomes.
