The Youth Engagement Program (YEP) helps young people that are disengaged in learning build self-esteem and enhance life skills.
YEP reconnects vulnerable young people aged 12-15 living in Logan, Redlands and Ipswich with formal education or preparation for work.
A yourtown team of professionals and volunteer mentors work together to understand the issues in a young person’s early disengagement from school. They help each young person address those issues and either re-enroll in school or begin the transition to work.
Young people in the Youth Engagement Program receive a range of counselling, skills workshops & training, and assistance in getting back to school or an alternate education program.
