What we do

yourtown takes the time to listen, understand and encourage young people to find their place.

We aim to be part of the solution by delivering services that tackle issues affecting the lives of children and young people. Our services include counselling, helplines, crisis care, education and training, employment, parenting help, mentoring, social development and life skills.

Support Children

Every child has the right to a brighter future. yourtown provides the resources and tools they need to achieve that through early intervention programs, access to all-hours support, and specialised creative therapies.

School Retention and Re-engagement

yourtown’s qualified specialists and trained mentors work with young people struggling in school, and many who’ve already left, to address their challenges in learning.

Programs For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples

As well as our other services, yourtown provides programs for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. This includes employment and wellbeing programs that create job options and community engagement opportunities. 

yourtown acknowledges the Traditional Owners of country throughout Australia and recognises their continuing connection to land, waters and community. We pay our respects to them and their cultures; and to elders both past and present.
