The Youth Transitions project provides early intervention assistance to address the barriers that prevent young people from participating as active citizens in the local community. The project works in collaboration with a range of stakeholders and partnering organisations to deliver targeted services in specific areas. The project targets refugees and other vulnerable migrants eligible for Settlement Grants, who are under the age of 25 and living in the Logan area. Exceptions can be made if there are complex needs present.
Some of the regular activities that are delivered by the Access Youth Transitions team include:
- Employment – Job Clubs, Trade Testers and employment opportunities
- Education – MyZones with Engagement Officers placed in local schools
- Vocational Opportunities – Career Counselling and Pathway Planning
- Sports Opportunities – Regular Sport Tournaments, Taster Sessions and pathways to mainstream sporting clubs
Every aspect of the work that Youth Transitions does is based on individual, one-on-one support between a young person and a Youth Transitions Officer.
