Youth Insearch is an early intervention program of support, mentoring, education, and empowerment, for young people aged 14-20, delivered through weekend workshops, support groups, peer support & leadership, and individual care.
Due to the impact of COVID-19 we are not running the usual weekend program and workshops but are supporting Brimbank young people through weekly youth led peer support virtual group sessions via Microsoft Teams.
Participation in Support Group settings has been extended to allow new referred participants to connect prior to attending any weekend workshop. Ongoing, peer to peer support is available through these Virtual Support Groups.
Please contact Brimbank Youth Services (Travis) directly on 0407 794 276 to self-refer or to refer a young person 14-20yrs living, working, studying, or recreating in Brimbank.
If eligible we will:
• Make contact with you/young person and do a normal Briefing via the phone or virtual technology.
• Connect you/young person with a buddy – a youth Leader
• Register you/young person to attend a virtual foundation/induction workshop with other new participants and Leaders
• Then connect you/young person into the Brimbank Virtual Support Group which you/they can attend weekly
