The youth workers at Picabeen support young people aged 8-21 years in the North West corridor of Brisbane. Programs are aimed at increasing opportunities for young people to participate in positive local activities and to develop linkages with the broader community.

Our youth workers aim to address local needs of vulnerable young people using a variety of support strategies including 1:1 support; group work practices, early intervention and prevention targeted support.

Our youth team aim to provide individualised support and pathways, to empower young people with skills for self-determination and to gain life skills.

individuals per annum with intensive and targeted case management

young people with information and referral services

young people through early intervention and prevention group work activities

young people through targeted group work (e.g. anxiety support group)
