Who We Can Assist…

Young people today are facing increasing pressure to fit in, succeed and find direction in their lives. However, social pressures and a lack of connectedness can make it difficult for young people to reach their full potential.

We are committed to helping young people to become purposeful, resourceful and strong members of the community, by encouraging them to develop the skills and knowledge they need to be resilient in the face of life’s challenges.

Our youth services and programs are available to all young people in the immediate Coledale area who are aged between 12-17.

Our ’Engaging Adolescents’ program is open to any interested parents or carers in the Coledale area.
