Youth Programs – Reconnect

Yarraville Community Centre provide Reconnect services across the local government areas of Maribyrnong, Melton and Brimbank in partnership with Dejrriwarrh Community and Education Services. We have five Reconnect coaches who work with and support young people into education or employment.

To be eligible for the Reconnect program young people must be:

  • Aged between 15 and 24 years at the time of registration
  • Separated from school for at least 14 weeks with no intention of returning
  • Not in full time employment for the last 12 months
  • Not in other education or training

Additionally, if the young person is 19 and under they cannot have completed year 12.

 

Referrals to the Reconnect program come from parents, schools, agencies and young people themselves. If you would like more information please contact us on 9687 1560 or agurman@ycc.net.au
