GYS Approach

To provide a safe and responsive environment to young people who live, play and work in the Glebe area through a range of services and programs, where they are supported by trained and professional staff.

We aim to provide young people with opportunities to socialise and develop knowledge and skills in a safe and supportive environment.

We encourage and promote mutual respect, acceptance of everyone’s rights and responsibilities, positive and healthy life choices, as well as opportunities to socialise and allow young people to develop their full potential.
