A kind and generous donation from you today can help a disadvantaged young person.
Sienna came to Youth Off The Streets with a long history of family instability due to domestic violence and constantly shifting homes. The disruption meant that Sienna had missed out on crucial years of schooling and fallen behind her peers.
Once under the supervision of Youth Off The Streets at one of our independent schools, Sienna started to receive the care and attention she urgently needed to build her self-esteem and start to repair some of the damage her violent upbringing had wrought on her.
With access to counselling and the support services we provide, Sienna was able to greatly improve her situation and continue her education in an understanding environment with a curriculum that was responsive to her specific needs, interests and talents.
When Noah came to us he was disengaged from education and at risk of social marginalisation.
Noah benefited from an approach to learning we have at all our independent schools called Restorative Practice, which encourages positive changes in a supportive and encouraging environment.
With the support our independent schools provide, young people like Sienna and Noah start to receive support tailored to the individual and complex academic, psychological and vocational needs they require.
Often Youth Off The Streets is the last chance for some of these young people to re-engage with life and build a better future.
As an individual, school, university, TAFE, workplace or social group you can organise an activity or challenge that can be fun and inspiring while helping disadvantaged young people. An existing event may also be a great way for you to support Youth Off The Streets.
This event is held in early May each year and brings together the real estate industry for a day to support young people at risk. Hosted by Damien Cooley of Cooley Auctions, the 2015 event raised over $65,000 making the total raised over the past seven years to be in excess of $450,000.Read what other events you can join near you
In March 2015, Logan Outreach launched Kicking Goals 2 Transition, which focused on self improvement through a series of workshops and sporting activities. The program helped young people transition from juvenile detention back into the community through setting goals and working on personal growth.
The program was run over the course of eight weeks and helped young people: develop life skills; increase their health and fitness; build team work; and their employability skills.Read more
