Youth Engagement Officers

Make enquiry

Our Youth Engagement Officers work with children, young people, and their families on what is important to them. This is delivered by identifying the needs of children, young people and their families and facilitate the development and coordination of resources to reach their personal goals.

Our Youth Engagement Officers work with young people across Newcastle, Maitland, Dungog and surrounding areas.
