GYC seeks to provide a homelike environment for children and young people that promote positive personal change. We firmly believe that positive change is predominately brought about by the positive input provided by Youth Workers. Considering that Youth Workers spend the most time with children and young people in our care, it is logical to expect that the input offered by their function is the most likely to act as a catalyst for positive change. Youth Workers remain positive by adhering to the program principles established at GYC. This principle is particularly relevant when working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people. At GYC we believe that every child deserves the right to be raised in an environment that connects them with the culture and spiritual heritage.
