QYS has been servicing the youth in our community since 1978. We operate on the principle that all youth have the right to be treated with dignity and respect, to be assisted without judgement or discrimination, and have access to physical and emotional safety. QYS staff are committed to social justice, cultural diversity, equity, and accountability.
Our aim is for the youth to be ‘the best they can be‘. We do this by providing youth a holistic service that focuses on 3 pillars of support. –
1. Maintaining family structures;
2. Creating sustainable lifestyles; and
3. Empowering youth through strength based strategies.
QYS is an organic organisation that adapts and flexes to the driving needs of our communities. Through the partnerships that we have formed, we are able to assist youth to identify and build their support network. We encourage youth to move from being a victim of their circumstances to becoming the instrument of their empowerment.
