St John's Youth Services
What does this organisation do?
St John’s Youth Services works with young people in Adelaide aged 16 to 25, who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness. As well as individuals, we accommodate and support young couples, families, single mums or dads, and their dependent children. We believe in young people, and refuse to define them by their temporary experience of homelessness. Instead, we focus on each young person’s talents and ambitions, and their capacity to overcome the challenges in their past and to take control of their future.
To deliver the Nunga Café and Youth Hub project, St John’s Youth Services will partner with the Career Employment Group (CEG). CEG is a South Australian not-for-profit organisation, with a strong track record in the delivery of training and employment outcomes for young people. In 2012, CEG established the Adelaide Cookery Institute to meet industry demand for high quality, industry-relevant culinary education.
People who are experiencing discrimination or disadvantage due to personal circumstances
We all expect to be treated with respect and afforded the same opportunity. Yet some people experience disadvantage as a result of discrimination.
Young people disengaged from education and work
We all want the best for our children and young people but the evidence suggests that if young people are not engaged with work or education their future wellbeing is in jeopardy. They are more likely to experience social and economic disadvantage, poorer physical and mental health and be at risk of social exclusion in the short and longer term.
