Strong Together represents a partnership between YETI and Queensland Youth Justice for young people aged 10 – 17 years old who are at risk of, or currently involved with the criminal justice system.
The program aims to support families to: better understand adolescent development; build new skills; and strengthen existing skills so that families and young people have the knowledge and resources to self-manage and young people cease and/or reduce criminal offending.
- Therapeutic family case management and care team support to families and young people five days per week.
- Individual supports to high risk young people that connect them with school, culture and community.
- Phone supports to identified families
- Locally developed culturally responsive adolescent parenting resources and community initiatives
All referrals to YETI for this program come from the Cairns Youth Justice Service Centre.
