Youth Worker service offers a strengths-based, client focused approach to empowering young people, removing barriers and advocacy. All young people have the right good health, well being, education, the prospect of good employment and participation in community life.
The service is completely free for young people aged 5-18 and living within Gore and surrounding districts. Our youth worker team provides support, encouragement, guidance and positive role-modelling.
The Youth Worker service provides skill and tools to develop well being, communication, knowledge, understanding, positive relationships, conflict management and coping techniques. This can be delivered one-to-one, or in group sessions.
The Youth Worker service can support a client with difficulties in self-confidence, coping, social skills, education, peer relationships, self-esteem, problematic behaviour, or drug & alcohol abuse.
