School Focused Youth Service

The School Focused Youth Service (SFYS) provides support to students from grade 5 to year 12 who are attending school, but vulnerable to or showing signs of disengaging from school.

The SFYS works with schools to identify appropriate interventions for students as well as capacity building for staff and families to better support students. The SFYS is funded by The Victorian Department of Education and Training but is able to work with Government, Independent and Catholic schools.
