The Youth and Community Safety Services (YCSS) Division brings together a range of programs that support Aboriginal children, youth and the community to improve safety, education, health and wellbeing outcomes. The Division includes Brown Street youth services, Town Camp youth services, Patrols and Looking After the Kids (LATK).
Brown Street and Town Camp youth services provide planned and intentional activities and supports for young people, which aim to build their social and emotional skills, support their development, provide a referral to other services and strengthen engagement by young people with education, training and employment. The range of supports provided by YCSS is known as the Youth Development Model (YDM).
The Young Women's Mentor is a new position created to ensure that the Brown Street Service is an inclusive and safe space for girls and young women. The Young Women's Mentor will work with girls and young women engaged with Tangentyere Youth Services to increase meaningful engagement with the service. The Young Women's Mentor will achieve meaningful engagement by ensuring that the voices of girls and young women are at the centre of planning and development, with a strong focus on consultation and collaboration.
The Young Women's Mentor will develop activities responding to young women's identified needs and interests, aiming to increase wellbeing, self-esteem, and resilience. The program is flexible, as it is guided by consultation with young women. As a result, activities may be recreational, educational, or cultural. They may focus on a range of topics, including women's health and healthy relationships. It is critical for the Young Women's Mentor to ensure that activities are culturally safe and appropriate. As such, the position will rely on the guidance of senior women, families, and communities.
The Young Women's Mentor will work alongside other Brown Street Staff to ensure that the service is inclusive of girls and young women responding to their specific needs and interests. The Young Women's Mentor will also work with other Youth Services staff in Town Camps to support an intentional focus on gender-inclusive programs.
