Y.Engage is a youth engagement service for the Gungahlin and Inner North regions of the ACT. This service is delivered by Northside Community Service.

Y.Engage utilises a range of strategies to engage vulnerable and in need young people aged 12 to 25, who are unlikely to have strong connections with their family or other primary and secondary services. Y.Engage team members actively engage and transition young people towards a strengthened support network, or to services that will meet their individual needs.

Y.Engage works with young people to find the right support, the right worker, at the right place, at the right time.

Y.Engage works with young people to help them to become visible, heard, active and empowered.

Y.Engage aims to create Volunteering Opportunities for Young People to run Youth-led Community Activities eg. Pop-up spaces. We aspire to create programs and events for young people, by young people.

Y.Engage provides short-term Casework using a Person-centred approach and co-authoring of goals. We aim to provide connections to longer term supports such as Health, Employment and Education.

Outreach activities include: Sports @ Harrison School Gym (Mondays 3.30-5.30 pm, during school term) and Dickson BBQ (First Friday of every month,10.00am-2.00pm outside Dickson Library).
