The Queensland Government is committed to supporting all young people to complete their education in order to enhance opportunities for further education and sustainable employment.
The Youth Support Coordinator Initiative (YSCI) recognises that many young people in the compulsory phase of education face difficulties in staying at school or making a transition to further education, training and/or employment.
Youth Support Coordinators undertake a vital role in helping at-risk students to re-engage with their schooling, transition to further education, training or employment and reach their full potential.
From 2011, seven Regional Youth Support Coordinators will be located in DET's regional offices across the state. In addition to continuing their front line work with young people, the Regional Youth Support Coordinators will also work with principals, teachers and other community organisations to deliver targeted services with real outcomes.
Following the signing of the YSCI Memorandum of Understanding 121kfor 2010-2013, the YSCI Program Guidelines 248khave been released. FAQ for parents 258kand FAQ for students 241k are available to provide information on the YSCI.
A communique 304k is available which provides a clear outline of the focus of the YSCI and Youth Connections.
Find a YSC or talk to your school.
