Targeted Youth Support

Targeted Youth Support

Targeted youth support consists of a small team of youth workers who are equipped with the knowledge, experience and resources to empower young people in making well-informed life choices and decisions.

Each young person will have access to an identified youth worker who will co-ordinate the delivery of the intervention typically over a 12 week period.

What we offer:
Intensive, short term and timely early intervention and prevention to support a young person in identifying and addressing their needs.

The team can support young people on a range of issues or concerns:

  • Changes in behaviour
  • Self esteem and wellbeing
  • Relationships
  • Life Skills
  • Being safe (online and out & about)
  • Managing emotions
  • Low or no school attendance.
  • Social and Communication skills
  • Family dynamics.

 

A professional has to refer a young person to receive Targeted Youth Support. You can email tys@jys.je for more information on how to refer. You can also speak to the team in person at one of the following drop-in sessions;
