This holistic program is delivered through supporting young people with the EFYF 6 Service Offers: Education, Employment, Health & Well-being, Civic participation, Social connection and Housing & living skills. We use a coaching model, which builds the talent and aspirations of young people to move beyond the experience of homelessness and focus on their transition into adulthood. The accommodation facility includes 40 studio style apartments with communal living areas. The foyers aim to support young people to develop their independence through completing a Certificate III or Year 12 equivalent whilst at the Foyer and transition out into employment and private rental at the end of their stay.

We are looking for a candidate that is motivated to lead the EFYF campaign wholeheartedly and demonstrate the Advantage Thinking approach in all areas of service delivery.
