About us

Glebe Youth Service is a not-for-profit charity committed to supporting young people between the ages of 12-19 reach their full potential, achieve their goals and contribute positively to their community. We have been providing youth services in Glebe for 30 years.

Glebe Youth Service acknowledges that we work on Gadigal Land. We pay our respects to the elders of this land past, present and emerging. We also acknowledge the many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples from many Indigenous Nations and pay respect to their resilience; their culture; and their elders: past, present, and emerging. We understand that the impacts of colonisation including: genocide; legislated racism; dispossession; the stolen generations; and ongoing institutional racism, continues to impact the lives of people in our community. The sovereignty of this land was never ceded and it always was, and always will be, Aboriginal Land.

Our Purpose

At Glebe Youth Service we believe that young people, at their full potential, are central to a thriving Glebe community. Young people make up a significant portion of our community. They contribute to Glebe today and they are the future of Glebe.
