School Focused Youth Services

Council’s School Focused Youth Service (SFYS) helps build partnership between local schools and community organisations to support students between year 5 and 12 who are vulnerable or showing signs of disengagement from school.

The objective of SFYS is to ensure young people remain connected to education. SFYS works with young people across government, Catholic and independent schools in the City of Whitehorse. School disengagement has significant impact on young people’s health, wellbeing and future employment opportunities. SFYS plays a critical role in addressing school disengagement and helping young people to reach their potential.
