School Focused Youth Services

Djerriwarrh Community & Education Services (Djerriwarrh) delivers School Focused Youth Services in the Melton region.

The School Focused Youth Services (SFYS) across Victoria aim to support young people (aged 10 – 18 years) who have been identified as being at risk of disengaging from education. Through the development of partnerships and improvements to the integration of services, SFYS seeks to connect school and community sectors in ways that build the capacity of young people to continue their education.

This year within the Melton region, SFYS will be providing additional support services for:

  • Vulnerable and at risk children aged 10-12 years in primary school (making the transition to secondary school)
  • Young carers, including young mothers
  • Culturally and linguistically diverse young people
  • Schools seeking to enhance parent engagement

Contact the School Focused Youth Service Coordinator, on 8746 1000 for more information about School Focused Youth Services or for help with seeking assistance for students at risk of disengaging from education.
