Gain the skills you need to work in this challenging but rewarding field

People who pursue a career in the community services sector (Youth Work) have a passion in empowering and supporting young people and their families.

Youth work is a practice that places young people and their interests first and is a relational practice, where the youth worker operates alongside the young person in their context. It is an empowering practice that advocates for and facilitates a young person's independence, participation in society, connectedness and realisation of their rights. (Australian Youth Affairs Coalition, 2013)
