Our work

School Focused Youth Services (SFYS)

School Focused Youth Services (SFYS) supports young people at school, ensuring they remain connected and engaged with education.

School Focused Youth Services are delivered on behalf of the Victoria Department of Education and Training in the Inner and Outer Gippsland areas of Victoria.

Who are we supporting with School Services?

School Focused Youth Services support schools and community organisations to work together to assist young people aged 10-18 years who are attending school but are vulnerable to or showing signs of disengagement from school.

How are services delivered?

School Focused Youth Services are available across all school sectors in Victoria, including government, Catholic and independent schools.

As a School Focused Youth Services provider, OzChild connects schools to a wide range of services, including direct interventions for young people, capacity building for school staff and partners, and local planning to identify and address disengagement.
