Its Early Intervention Program targets young people at risk of becoming homeless, aiming to keep them at home and connected with support such as referrals for mediation and counselling.
The service also offers respite accommodation for young people 16 and over while issues are worked through.
Tonight there is a party at the Byron Bay Youth House to celebrate Youth Week and 30 years of supporting at risk youth.
Everyone is invited – all former and current residents, staff, management committee members, volunteers, representatives from other related services, and any interested community members.
There will be entertainment by young people, food ‘and no boring speeches. Come and join in, share stories and be part of the Youth House extended family. It’s a time to celebrate the resilience of youth and those who strive to support them and also to acknowledge some of the successes, challenges and hardships along our collective 30 year journey.’
The party starts at 5pm and ends at 8pm and is an alcohol-free event. For information or to RSVP for the party call 6685 7264. More information can be found at www.byronbayyouthhouse.org.
