Our Mission

Youth Off The Streets is helping disconnected young people discover greatness within, by engaging, supporting and providing opportunities to encourage and facilitate positive life choices

Our Vision

Youth Off The Streets’ vision is that we are well planned and balanced to meet the needs of all our stakeholders and in doing so we are focused on outcomes, community and sustainability.

“Young people facing challenges are more in need of the skills and self-confidence provided through education that allows them to not just survive, but thrive throughout their lifetime”

Father Chris Riley
