Are you looking to create positive change in the lives of young people and work for a program that allows you to have a flexible lifestyle? CatholicCare’s Reconnect Youth and Family Worker role might just be for you. Reconnect is a community based early intervention program for young people aged 12 to 18 years who are homeless or at risk of homelessness and their families. Reconnect provides outreach support to young people to help improve their mental health, stabilise their living situation, achieve family reconciliation where possible and improve their level of engagement with education, work and their local community.
Through outreach, the Reconnect Youth and Family Workers provide therapeutic counselling, offer case management, mediation, group programs and practical support to the whole family to break the cycle of homelessness. With a focus on family reconciliation, the program has the ability to work with both the young person and their parent’s/care giver and siblings concurrently, with individual workers where appropriate, to support ongoing positive family relationships. Practice is underpinned by a strengths-based and family focused approach. If you would like to work with us to make a positive difference in people’s lives - we want to hear from you!!!
