More than half the population in the NPY Lands are 24 years or under. The Youth Service helps young people living in remote central Australia achieve their goals and thrive.
Case Management Support
We offer family-oriented case management support. Our work is done collaboratively with family, key community members, specialists and other NPY Women’s Council services to provide support, care and resources.
We take referrals from family, friends, service providers and from young people themselves.
Recreation and Diversion
We offer fun, safe, culturally relevant activities that support the development of young people and their communities. We also offer more targeted activities such as camps, bush trips, and young women and young men’s programs.
Education and Leadership
We nurture future leaders through educational and leadership programs as well as individual support.
To help young people in the NPY region dream big and overcome challenges, we support them to access education, training, and employment opportunities. This includes helping young people access boarding and community schools, and leadership programs.
We also prioritise development of local staff to deliver the youth programs.
Advocacy and Collaboration
We are a voice for young people in the NPY region on many issues including; youth justice, substance abuse prevention, youth development, mental health, service provision and education.
We work with government, communities and other service providers to support good change for young people.
The annual publication of the NPYWC Youth Team, Never Give Up News is an exciting magazine that promotes great achievements and positive stories of young people across all NPY member communities.
