Mission statement: Our combined program creates a safe environment for young people to learn and grow in. It will be a place to gain confidence in their own skills and abilities whilst providing young people with the capability to make life choices that will be in their best interests.
The collaborative approach from the two organisations provides an innovative and alternative education space using intensive case management, experiential education methodologies with a strong emphasis on transitions to returning to school and/or employment outcomes.
The young people that attend the program are referred from their home school for a diverse range of reasons.
Whatever the reason, the one factor that is common to those young people is that they have a very practical way of learning; they don’t sit around for too long, they like variety, and it must be hands on doing stuff !.
The Youth Space program, is an alternative education space using experiential education methodology, we have a workshop area and a small learning center/ IT area.
The program offers young people the opportunity to re engage in learning through their participation in the workshop/ learning modules that are linked to a very practical hands on approach
The key to the workshops is that everyone is involved, individual skills are recognized and where skills need to be developed this happens in a supportive way.
