GYS hopes to launch a new website in 2013.
The service offers a range of programs and activities including drop-in (mixed, GirlZone and BoyZone), casework, a school holiday program and After Dark, which provides a safe space on Friday and Saturday nights for young people to engage in recreational and educational activities. We also partner with other organisations to deliver services; for example, we partner with a range of agencies to deliver the Glebe Education Pathways Project.
The service is funded by the NSW Department of Family and Community Services and City of Sydney. Other agencies have provided small grants for a range of purposes. We also get support from the Glebe community in the form of volunteers and donations.
At the service we expect to be able to maintain a comfortable and safe environment for all young people. Violence and threats are not allowed and those visibly under the influence of drugs or alcohol are asked to leave. We view the service as an oasis from the many problems that beset young people in Glebe. Our goal is to provide young people with the skills and information they need to move forward in a positive way.
We also encourage you to like our Facebook page for regular updates.
