At Kyogle Youth Action we place young people, their aspirations, needs and wants at the heart of what we do.
All the activities, programs and events that we run are organised in consultation with the young people who utilise our service.
A safe and inclusive space for young people to hang out, have fun, grab some food and access services as required. This is a young person only space that is facilitated by trained Youth Workers. Afterschool activities are planned throughout the school year including the Music program, Gym group, Writing group, Sports and Art activities.
Each school holiday we deliver a full school holiday program for young people aged 12 – 18 years. The activities planned are informed by the young people who participate in the service. Check out the posters below to see some of the fun activities we have delivered in recent years.
We run a female empowerment program called FEMS at Kyogle High School twice a year. This program supports young women in a safe setting to learn about topics including mental health, wellbeing, healthy relationships, sexual health, menstruation education, bullying and so much more!
We support young people with access to training they identify would be helpful, such as First Aid, Mental Health First Aid, Food Safety Training, Barista Training and pre-employment skills. Youth Workers support young people with developing resumes, approaching employers and preparing for interviews.
Youth Workers provide targeted support to young people who would like assistance to achieve their goals and for those experiencing life challenges that require extra assistance. We can support with 1:1 mentoring and support, referrals to services, assistance to access services and so much more.
We organise multiple events throughout the year for young people including a jam-packed Youth Week schedule, social activities in the community such as Lismore RollerWorld Trips, Youth Busking at the monthly Kyogle Bazaar, beach trips and so much more!
KYA is a lead organisation in Kyogle Anti-Violence Alliance and in 2021 we supported the first 16 Days of Activism to happen in Kyogle. KYA supports the First Nations-led Kyogle NAIDOC Week celebrations and champions positive stories that affect young people and the issues that impact them.
For you, by you. Hosting events, activities and training opportunities.
