Youth Frontiers

Youth Frontiers is a youth mentoring program aimed at supporting young people aged 10-17 years who have had contact with the justice and child protection systems. The program is being delivered across four locations in New South Wales: Central Coast Local Government Area (LGA), Sydney LGA, Fairfield LGA and the Illawarra (Wollongong and Shellharbour LGAs). Both the Central Coast and Sydney locations directly support Aboriginal young people, while the Fairfield and Illawarra locations support young women.

Young people participating in Youth Frontiers will be matched with mentors and will receive at least 52 hours over 12 months of mentoring support. The program gives mentees an opportunity to build life skills and self-confidence through mentoring support and by undertaking a community engagement activity.

The recommissioning of the program has recently been finalised and successful service providers are detailed below. To find out more information about the program in each of the four locations please contact the service provider directly (contact details below).
