Youth Services – it's your journey!
We are able to support young people with a disability with a wide range of options including education and employment, ensuring you can select the services that best meet your needs.
Our suite of youth services can be accessed either as stand alone services, or via our Youth Transition Pathways Initiative as outlined below, depending on the level of support and coordination you would like.
Youth Transition Pathways Initiative
Our Youth Pathways program provides you with a wide range of options in education and employment as a young person.
This program provides you with one on one support with a Youth Transitions Coordinator available to help you navigate and provide access to learning and employment opportunities which align to your career, community and learning goals, as well as identify any additional support you would like.
You're also able to access group-based supports that can be tailored to suit you. For example, our educational programs are co-designed with you, and driven by your areas of interest, your skills and strengths.
Endeavour Foundation’s educational and learning programs offer you many benefits including:
- Accredited coursework and training using nationally recognised qualifications - some of our programs incorporate Certificate-level qualifications
- Co-designed non-accredited coursework - which are designed to meet the needs of young learners.
The following services are all available as part of the Youth Transition Pathways Initiative - and can also be accessed as stand-alone services:
