About Us

OUR COMMITEE

Our History

Goodna Youth Services Inc. was founded in the late 1980s to meet the needs of 'at risk' and homeless young people within the Goodna area. The agency was incorporated in 1992 as Goodna Youth Accommodation Service Inc (GYAS). Since this time the service has expanded and widened its client focus and in 2002 took on its present name of Goodna Youth Services Inc (GYS) to reflect these changes.

PHILOSOPHY

At GYS we strive to learn and continually improve.
Resolving homelessness is the responsibility of:
governments; the community; families and individuals.
GYS believes that young people have the right to safe,
secure, and to be treated as equal people in our society.
GYS suggests that people need opportunities to become active
in decision making in order to improve their lives.

STANDARDS

GYS ensure that we use evidence-based practices,
strengths-based approaches,
ethical and professional service delivery.
We insure that the safety of the people we engage with is paramount
and we are consistent and responsive in our service provision.
Our industry standards and accountability are directed to our young people,
their families, community, partners and supporters.

Mission


To create opportunities that value and empower young people, build family harmony and foster supportive communities, enabling all young people to reach their full potential.

Vision

To provide a service that best meets the needs of young peoples’ changing and diverse needs as they transition to independence. We will seek opportunities to work in partnership with those who can assist us in achieving this vision and include seeking out opportunities to work in collaboration with our clients, fellow service providers, government and community members.
