Lower North Shore Youth Services In Schools Network
Youth Services has started discussions with local neighbouring Councils to expand their Youth Services In Schools Network.
Their aim is to support overwhelmed wellbeing teams in schools in their LGA; as a response to emerging youth challenges and concerns surrounding mental health and employment.
Councils who have joined the network include Ku-ring-gai, Mosman, North Sydney, Lane Cove, City of Ryde and Northern Beaches.
Schools will be contacted by Councils regarding what current challenges their students are facing and will be offered a Youth Services in School Guide. The guide contains a list of local youth services and information about how services can support students in schools. Some examples include; outreach housing/mental health case management, resilience & life skills programs, information workshops and more.
The network will then work together with schools interested in the extra support and partnership to co-design collaborative responses to their needs.
Contact Youth Services Willoughby City Council to discuss how our team might be able support your school.
