Young Women's Support Service

 

THE YOUNG WOMEN'S SUPPORT SERVICE - CREATING LINKS, CREATING CONNECTIONS.

The Young Women’s Support Service (YWSS) at Whitelion is a responsive and creative service for young women who have been involved with the Child Protection and/or Youth Justice Systems and are living in Melbourne's North / West Metro Region.

YWSS uses a strengths based model to empower young women to make positive decisions about their lives by addressing issues of isolation, disconnection, lack of positive peer relationships and institutionalisation.

The YWSS aims to give young women at risk, (both those in the community and those in Youth Justice settings) an opportunity to engage in positive activities based on ideals of personal and social growth; form meaningful relationships with peers and engage within the broader community.

Personal Development Programs

The young women are given the opportunity to explore their personal stories through a variety of peer education programs. All young women are given the opportunity to join a peer education project. In the past these have included the Body Positive Program and the Body/Mind/Soul program.

Healthy Minds, Health Bodies Program

A significant component of the YWSS is the engagement program facilitated within the Parkville Youth Justice Centre that engages young women in physical movement through a range of programs and provides the opportunity to release stress, be active and creative, build relationships and develop self esteem.
