The Salvation Army Youth Services offers targeted programs that support young people across Australia on their journey to independence.

  • Alcohol and Other Drugs
  • Driver Training
  • Education
  • Employment and Training
  • Housing and Homelessness
  • Specialist Therapeutic Responses
  • Youth Justice

*Please be aware than not all services may be provided at every centre.

Our Model of Care

Our Model of Care Journey to Independence is underpinned by both Psychologically Informed Environments (PIE) and Trauma Informed Care (TIC). Both approaches resolve to improve the psychological, social, physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing of children, young people and their families.

Working collaboratively with partner services, we value the dynamic networks that support sustainable outcomes for young people. We commit to actively working alongside young people, and their identified support systems, on their journey to independence.

Some of the networks, programs and services we offer to support young people around Australia include:
