Build resilience, stay engaged

Being young isn’t always easy — balancing education with a social life, family responsibilities and relationships, can be stressful. Which is why we work hard to provide young people with the support to live engaging lives and build resilience.

At times, a young person may feel disconnected from their family, isolated from their community or disengaged at school, leaving them feeling alone and misunderstood. UnitingCare works with young people to understand these feelings and learn ways to approach any challenges life may bring.

Here are some of the programs we offer for young people.
