Youth at Risk (YaR)

Youth at Risk (YaR)

The State Government is committed to improving the outcomes for all young people at risk in Tasmania, including those in greatest need that have come into contact with the statutory system (Child Safety or Youth Justice).

‘Youth at risk’ is a complex problem that requires collaborative intervention across government and non-government service sectors in order to identify risk and intervene earlier in the lives of vulnerable young people.

The Youth at Risk Strategy aligns and builds upon a number of reforms occurring across government including Strong Families, Safe Kids (Redesign of Child Safety Services), Safe Homes, Safe Families (the Family Violence Action Plan), Joined Up Human Services, Tasmania’s Affordable Housing Strategy and the Youth Suicide Prevention Plan.

Free2B Girls Group

Free2B Girls Program for Regional Communities


"Community programming that focuses on the strengths and successes already in the lives of

adolescent girls can be a powerful way of supporting and empowering them further."

- Girls Group Mentoring Toolkit 2015


The Free2b Girls Program is an early intervention approach to the personal

development and social inclusion of girls aged 10-15 in regional communities around

Australia. The program helps build self-belief and identity in teenage girls through

focusing on their creative capabilities, positive attributes and contributions to their local

community.

Free2b Girls groups provide participants with positive experiences of themselves, other

women and their communities. Up to 15 girls are offered responsibility for a space

where they can develop their own agendas and activities within established boundaries

of safety, tolerance and respect. Groups run weekly for approx. 2 hrs and are assisted by

local volunteers trained in the Free2b approach to helping foster the girls’ interests,

passions and individual personalities.
