OUR YOUTH SERVICES
YOUTH SUPPORT AND EDUCATION
While young people are at Pyramid Social Services we provide an extensive range of support services including:
- Future planning: we work with our young people to create goals and think about how they would like to live independently.
- Practical support: we offer supervised driving sessions to assist young people in obtaining a driver’s licence, transportation to appointments and more.
- Independent living: we provide information and assistance with budgeting, financial planning, nutrition, cooking, housekeeping and health.
- Relationship building: we develop trust in relationships and seek to build self-esteem and confidence.
If required we refer our clients to a network of different providers who offer specialist services outside the scope of our practice.
We provide a Drug Education Program which operates from Pyramid Social Services. This program provides one-on-one support and builds knowledge and skills around how young people can reduce the risks and harm associated with drug use. Promoting physical and mental health initiatives are also key components of the program
